To say my dad works hard for his family is an understatement. He currently works as the Director of Operations at a pharmaceutical plant, but prior to that he served in the United States Navy for 24 years. During that time, he was gone for about six months of every year, but he always took time to write letters, postcards, and emails (not to mention the many souvenirs he would bring home just in time for birthdays). Though he started at the bottom, rank wise, he diligently and arduously worked his way up. Early in his career, he served as a Photographer’s Mate, during which time he learned the ins and out of photography, and it was through him that my love of taking photos (and being in them!) blossomed. Today, he continuously gives me advice on existing shots, helps me create new ones, and is a source of constant support.
Thank you, Dad, for all you do. I love you.
