He is my dad. Okay, so not really. But, he's my step-dad. My mom married him when I was almost 5 years old. My whole life he has always been there for me. Done everything that my "real" father hasn't. When I am down, he'll pick me up. He has done so much for me in my life. The biggest part of why he is my hero is how he makes me laugh. He has the biggest sense of humor I've been able to experience. He lives with three women -my mom, my niece, and myself- and he never complains.
He is not only a hero to me! He is a hero for our country; he served in the Air Force for 8 years, and I deeply admire that about him.

We've all had people in our lives who have made a positive impact on us. A parent or grandparent, a sibling who was there for us, or maybe even just a guy who shines shoes for a living? Whoever they are, tell us their story so they can inspire us even more.Tell Us Your Story All Everyday Hero Stories
