I'll try to help, even though I don't quite see how it is possible to find someone whose name, age, and branch of service your aren't sure of.

Most service records are not online. Just doing a quick search on the name George McCafferty, I found several thousand of them in my databases, any one of whom could be the man whose daughter you are looking for. Seven hundred fifty of them were known to have served in some branch of the service.

Here is one online resource:

https://www.archives.gov/research/military/veterans/online

Here's where you can find what army records that are online (the database is down at the moment but they say they are working on it):

http://armyrecordsonline.com/army-personnel-records/

Here is how you request military records:

https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records

This one gives a description of what is actually in the archives.

https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/record-request-notice

Odds are that someone who was colonel (even a Lt. Col) in 1958/9 would be dead by now.

You might also try http://www.findagrave.com. Sometimes they will include obituary information listing children and a name might jog your memory.
