His dad is Andrew Machan and mom is Hazel-Mae Machan, nee Goodman. Allen was born in Canada, as was his dad. His mom was born in Iow

LE CIMETIERE AMERICAIN DE NORMANDIE et LE MEMORIAL
Le cimetière occupe le site du cimetière provisoire de St. Laurent, créé par la Première armée des Etats-Unis le 8 juin 1944, qui fut le premier cimetière américain de la Deuxième guerre mondiale sur le sol européen. Il se trouve à l'extrémité nord de la petite route de 800 mètres qui le sépare de la départementale. Sa surface est de 698 m2. Il abrite les tombes de 9 387 soldats américains, pour la plupart tombés pendant le débarquement de juin 1944 et les combats qui l'ont suivi, mettant fin à la guerre. Sur les murs du jardin semi-circulaire à l'est du mémorial, sont gravés les noms de 1 557 Américains qui ont donné leur vie au service de leur pays, mais dont les restes n'ont pu être retrouvés ou identifiés.
