My Hero. My Father.

Hello, my name is Cassie O. and i live in Paradise, CA :) My hero is my dad.. He's had a hard life right from the get-go. From his time spent as an M.P. in the marines to a single father for most of his adult life. My father is really my hero because he has never given up and though when times were tough, he's always had a smile on his face. He's a gentle soul, who very rarely shouts or gets angry! He has told me many times throughout my life that: "I've always wanted to give [my] kids what i...

Josh joked about how he couldn't wait to reach the rank of Captain so that people could address him as Captain Kirk. He always said that he wouldn'...

My Hero Story...

There are several military and fire service heroes I have, but I would like to talk about my brother James specifically. My brother and I shared the same father who was a firefighter. Our dad passed away in the line of duty in a structural fire in 1998. After our dad passed we were seperated and sent to our different mothers in different states.
