Re: NFCU question

Did he retire? If not, he counts as prior service, which isn't eligible for membership. He would have had to join while he was still in the service. In my case, I was able to join since my mother-in-law was retired from the Army. 

So unless your father put in his 20+, I think you're out of luck. There's a good amount of people who've been (unfairly, in my opinion) excluded by joining since they're prior service.
