Richard Allison

Richard Allison's interest in military history stems from both his ancestry and personal experience. His forebears fought in a number of U.S. wars. In 1968 he was commissioned in the U.S. Naval Reserve through OCS. He served three year’s active duty, first as a watch officer aboard the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid (CVS-11) and following that, on an admiral’s staff in a national command authority watch-standing and administrative capacity. Afterwards he became a lawyer and affiliated with the Navy JAG Corps drilling reserve. He retired from the Navy in 1996 as a captain.

As a civilian Allison worked 35 years as a bank trust lawyer both in estate and personal trust administration. In 1999 he served as chairman of the Michigan Banker’s Association Trust Executive Committee. A lifelong resident of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, Allison served as president of the Rotary Club there and also as chairman of the non-profit Grosse Pointe War Memorial Association. He is married and has a daughter who is married to a Navy helicopter rescue swimmer. Retired from both careers now, he enjoys mountain hiking, reading, researching military history and writing.
