Why He’s Such a Great Father: When my father came home from the Vietnam War, he never received a parade acknowledging his service. You will not find his name listed in any history books. After my father retired from the military, he graduated college and sacrificed so that his daughters and grandchildren could have college degrees.

How He Helps Others in His Community: My father helps others by leading through example. In him, others are able to see his strength, discipline and a person of impeccable character. He carries himself in a manner that makes all that come around him want to emulate him.
