A soldier in our midst

If you look closely through the color guard – you’ll see a soldier. That’s my dad.

All my life growing up my dad was ashamed of the service he gave to this country. Ashamed of serving in a war that no one wanted. Ashamed of something that he should be everything BUT ashamed of.

He’s not ashamed anymore. And I never was. But I’ve never been more proud to say that my dad is a United States Marine – and he’s a hero. He’s my hero.
