MOUNT VERNON – Dan Wilson doesn’t scare easily.
He spent 22 years in the Air National Guard, flying fighter jets and transports. He once fell off a 100-foot waterfall and lived to tell the tale. He’s battled myelodysplastic syndrome – a form of blood cancer – for years. In the early stages, doctors believed he had leukemia.
“I’ve had some near-death experiences,” the 72-year-old Mount Vernon resident said with a laugh.
