Police just showed up at my door. My dad collapsed in a wal mart and hit his head hard. My dad had a heart attack less than a year. My mom did not know my cell number so the cops found me. She has no idea what is going on but things don't look good. My wife and I are heading up to the hospital and hour away now.

My dad died at 6 am peacefully. He was 67. Massive heart attack.

Vietnam vet and a hell of an awesome father.


ETA

I found his DD214 and his medals.

National Defence service medal, vietnam Service medal, 2 Bronze stars, vietnam Campeign medal w/ Device 1960, 1 0/3 bar, Army commendation medal, sharpshooter(M-14, Marksman(45 Pistol), Purple Heart.

I can't believe he is gone. I'm going through his things and hearing him talk about where he got them or what for.
