Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you all for leaving reflections about my dad. I love reading and learning about him. It is truly a blessing to be able to hear such amazing things about him. Since I was only 2 months old when he passed away, I always wish I could know more about him. If any of you would be willing to share some stories with me or things about my dad from the army, the academy, or anything at all, it would mean the world to me. You can contact me via email at [email protected]
