My Dad


My Dad, Allan B. McNeil, was born in Colfax Township, Michigan, to William and Susan McNeil. Dad was the second youngest of 11 kids.

Dad joined the Air Force on his 17th birthday, and was honorably discharged from the Air Force four years later. During his time in the military, Dad earned the Korean Service Medal, UN Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Good Conduct Medal.

Dad never worked in either the criminal justice or forensic psychology fields that I recall, although he was a lifelong advocate and aficionado of criminal justice related issues, TV shows, movies, and books. Two of his favorite TV shows were The F.B.I. and Dragnet.

Dad made his transition on October 23, 2012, and is buried in Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan.
