My father, Patrick J. Malloy Jr.,enlisted in the United States Army in 1954. He was 19. He earned The Parachutist Badge or “Jump Wings” and served in the 82nd Airborne Division during the Korean War. Part of “The Paratrooper’s Creed” reads: I shall respect the abilities of my enemies;I will fight fiercely and with all of my heart; surrender is not in my creed. My father never surrendered in his fight against ALS; he fought bravely and honorably until ALS took his life in 1985. Our family remembers his bravery and honors his service.
