I am proud of Dad because he was in the Marines for five years, the Army for twenty years, and he fought in the Vietnam war. He retired when he was fifty years old, with the status of a colonel. Today, he still tells us a lot of stories about the army and the war. He worked really hard to protect our country and I am really proud of him. I know he doesn’t like to admit it, but I know that it took a lot of courage for him to fight. I could never do that.
