Even though I only had a dad till I was 17 yrs. Old, he taught me a lifetime of memories on how to be a sportsmen, treat others the way you want to be treated but most of all to be a proud American. My dad never graduated H.S. but joined the Army on his own and started his own business all of his life. My dad was proud to be in the Army and proud to be a father. But I am more proud to be his son.
