Alcario entered the US Navy in 1943 and was assigned to the USS Pocomoke (AV-9) Class seaplane tender during World War II. She operated principally in the Pacific Theatre of the war and serviced military seaplanes.
He thoroughly enjoyed dancing at the senior citizen centers. Mr. Armenta also loved spending time with his children especially going to visit Helen.
