Terry Larkin enlisted in the U.S. Navy, was trained as a photographer and served aboard the USS Ticonderoga, CVA 14. He also had the privilege to be up close to history as the Navy photographer for capsule recovery efforts for Apollo 16 and 17, the last two manned lunar missions. He is presently the junior vice commander of Disabled American Veterans Chapter 86, in Palm Coast. He uses his skills as a Navy-trained photographer to bring the chapter’s gallant efforts to help veterans and their families to life in pictures. Larkin also volunteers his time and skills to photograph events for other local service organizations, as well as the two local high school JROTC units. He is the fundraising organizer for the DAV’s Vietnam Veterans Casino Night, which will take place March 25 at the National Guard Armory in Flagler County.
