My hero sacrificed 33 years of his life to serve in the United States Navy. My Hero enlisted at 17 and worked until age 50 to improve New England Naval troops in numerous countries and states. He served in Hawaii, Texas, Japan, Korea, Egypt and Cuba. Most recently, my Hero was deployed to the Middle East for nine months to jump start a security mission. He retired at age 50 in August of 2011 as a Master Chief Petty Officer, and I could not be more proud of his sacrifice. Thank you Daddy, you're my Hero!
