I knew Captain Gretzfred while assigned to the TSC for CPWP at NAS Barbers Pt. I was a black. Shoe OS Chief. He was our Chief of Staff and a great leader. He could outrun everyone during the PT. He is one of the reasons this destroyer sailor loved naval aviation!

Larry and I had parallel career paths during our years in the Navy. He was from Nebraska and I was from next door Iowa. We were both enlisted P-3 Aircraft Combat Aircrew. Then we both attended college and met in the summer of 1972 at Naval Aviation Officer Candidate School. I remember we were the only two Candidate Officers walking around with Wings Of Gold (Aircrew Wings). After flight training we both ended up back in P-3s, Larry at NAS Barbers Point, myself at NAS Moffett Field. Our next tour was together as instructors at VP-31, NAS Moffett Field. We both ended up as P-3 Squadron Commanding Officers and latter on we both were promoted to Captain. Larry was a very easy going and likeable person and a example of where hard work can get you. I know his family and friends are very proud of him. Larry is truly a Great American.

I knew Larry while he was stationed at Moffett Field, CA, and had the pleasure of working with him on a couple of different projects. He was always positive, motivated, enthusiastic and energized, and was definitely an asset to the Naval Service and to his country. I had just begun to try to track him down to make contact again when 9-11 happened and I was greatly shocked and saddened to see his name on the list of people killed in the attack on the Pentagon. I think of him often and know that he was serving his country when he died.
Larry, rest in peace.

I was a flight engineer in vp6 with Larry when he was a young Ltjg in vp6. He always had a smile and a positive outlook and in general just a nice man. He was an asset to his country and I am honnored to have known him. Rest in peace old friend.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
