Master Sergeant Allan L. Miller passed away after a brief illness on February 13, 2022, at the age of 81.  Allan was an Army Special Forces veteran who retired with over 25 years of active duty.

Allan was born on November 26, 1940, in Clearfield Iowa to his parents, Margaret and Harold Miller.  After graduating from high school Allan decided he wanted to join the Army and proudly served in the Special Forces at various military installations throughout the United States and overseas.

While stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina he met Martha Gonsalves and married on March 24, 1980.  Allan and Martha lived in Fayetteville until relocating to Washington state where he was stationed at Fort Lewis.  

After retiring from the military, he worked for the Veterans Administration (upon retirement from the V.A. he moved back to Fayetteville) and became deeply involved with the Special Forces Association serving in various capacities.  He and his wife thoroughly enjoyed socializing at Special Forces Association events.  He had a passion for military memorabilia, coin collecting, stamp collecting and his Ford F-150 4x4 truck.  Allan had a great sense of humor and was known for his jokes, storytelling, and words of wisdom.
