I didn't know that Dale was a honored war hero. I always knew that he did helpful things for my parents, and now I also know he did so many selfless things to help others during the Vietnam war. I'm even more proud of my brother-in-law. Also I know that now he is in a better place with no pain, no more doctors and at peace. He was one of a kind and will be thoroughly missed by his whole family.
