I wasn’t very fortunate to know my dad as well as I hoped. Altho I had many father figures in my life most of which pushed me to joining this great navy. I could never repay them for all they did for me but it always gets me, fathers are these hard ass stubborn mean and scary guys. Most you think will kill you within seconds of meeting you but moments like this show their true nature. Even this marine who was conditions trained and excepted to fight kill and destroy still has a heart….the heart of a father and let me say I cannot wait till I have that honor. Here’s to our dads in uniform.
