#VeteranOfTheDay Army Veteran Thomas Ferrell Allison

Posted on Donna Kee

Thomas Ferrell Allison was born in Parkland, Washington, in October 1979. In grade school, Allison enjoyed playing war and otherwise messing around at church camp. He graduated from Washington High School, then joined the Army. Christian faith was a central part of Allison’s life. His family reported that, when they were concerned for his safety in the service, he would attempt to reassure them by saying, “Some of us will get to heaven first.”
