    He was a better person, father, husband, and soldier than I ever was. I couldn't have been happier then when I was hearing about his days with his "Joes". He choose the Army because of me along with my father having served. He took to it like a duck to water. There was one exception, he was not competative or concerned with making rank. He did more than was required of him only didn't take actions that would have helped his advancement. He loved being a Team Leader, Shift Leader or Squad Leader. He was never driven by ego, but to help others and care for others.
