You guys hear me talk about my mom a lot, but maybe not my dad. This can be misleading because I’m close with my father as well. I cannot begin to explain what he has been through in his life, but has always (and continues to be there for me). He is the man who taught me about faith, hope and love…to follow one’s dream and not to give up. He doesn’t talk about it, but just does it. Some things he’s done and has been though.

  • Took 28 credits in one quarter at community college to earn his associates degree while working full time and raising my brother (with my mom).
  • Was in a POW camp for several years when he served in the South Vietnamese Army.
  • Continues to support my family in Vietnam.

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers, but for me, mine in particular.
