My soldier my daddy Melissa McAllister
November marks two days for me;one it is Veterans’ Day month and the other, the anniversary of my father’s death in Korea during the Cold War. The casualties of this war sometimes forgotten. November 1st 1979 while patrolling the DMZ in Korea my dad took fire from the north. Due to mechanical failure his cobra helicopter crashed and he was killed. My father served honorably in Vietnam as well from 1970-1971.
