Later he joined the United States Army, training in the Special Forces, becoming a Green Beret and he fought in Vietnam. He was also a black belt in Karate.

Melvin accepted Christ as his savior early on at St. Joseph Baptist Church in Statesville, NC. Upon moving to Winston-Salem, he joined New Jerusalem Baptist under the direction of Rev. Samuel Cornelius and later he joined Union Baptist Church under the direction of Bishop Sir Walter L. Mack, Jr.

On April 5, 1969 he was united with the love of his life, Belinda Napper Daniels. To this union four children were born.

Melvin was employed by Schlitz, as known as Stroh’s Brewery, where he served dutifully for thirty years and retired in August 1998.
