was born and raised in Arkansas, the son of a Farmer, and also my Grandfather
was in WW1. My father himself is a retired Lt. Col. US army Intelligence
and Airborne (101st! the best!) Because of him, I got to have a very privileged
upbringing. I've gotten to live places some people only ever dream
of visiting, seen things some people on see on tv, and in general lived
a very full life, before I was 16.
he retired he went back to collage and got his teaching license to teach
history and Geography. For a while ,during the time I was still in High

am not always the perfect daughter. At time is know I cause him much heartache
and head ache, but no matter what, my Father is always my father and I
love him dearly. I just at times, don't tell him that enough
I have said, My father is Retired Military. He Served in the Vietnam. Because
of my father, I have a very strong sense of Country and patriotism.

my father with out saying something about that. It's very much a part of

by people saying things against our men in uniform and our flag.
For this, I thank my father, unlike many my age I am not just NOW finding
my sense of country, because of my father, I always had it, and I've always
been proud of that. But more proud of my father, the things he's stood
for, and stands for still, Our country needs more men like him about these

me. I only made one of them myself, the rest I collected off the internet.
