This man is a hero in my eyes. He fought for his country in a foreign land guiding younger soldiers to help keep them alive. He was married 53 years he did whatever it took to keep his family safe and comfortable. He drove a school bus a pool business and drove a icecream truck. He was tough as nails yet kind and gentle. He always showed his love to his family, dogs and is my honor to be your son in law God bless you fallen soldier.
