Father's Day Reflections

My dad is the hardest working man I know. He works a full time job, he works on the farm, and on Sundays and Wednesdays, he pastors at the Assembly of God at Jasper. The work ethic I have comes from my dad.

Father's Day reflections

I can often be heard explaining that since I was a little girl, I have looked forward to growing up to be a 65 year-old man. My dad, Tubby Lee, was that old man. When I was in grade school, he was my model for adulthood - a 65 year-old in bib overalls with just as much white hair coming out of his ears as there was his scalp.

06.15 CAMP JACK COLUMN: Sorry, Sailor

During the recent 80th anniversary of D-Day, I watched a reporter interviewing a World War II veteran. At 97 years old, he is one of the youngest remaining WWII veterans as he was so anxious to enter the fight that he lied about his age and joined the Navy at 16. When asked if he thought kids today would do the same, he said no explaining that most kids don’t seem to understand much about patriotism or serving their nation these days. He added that lately, when he looks around at what’s going on, he feels like a foreigner in his own country.
