There is an Air Force prayer that reads in part, ” Lord guard and guide the men who fly, Through the great spaces of the sky, Be with them as they take to air, In morning light and sunshine fair. Eternal Father, strong to save, Give them courage, make them brave, Protect them whereso’er they go, From shell and flak and fire and foe.”
Those who put their lives in harms way to protect the Freedoms we hold so dear are all heros. To risk your life for those who you have never met is one thing, however I feel that fighting for those you hold the most dear must light a special fire in their belly. I would risk everything to safeguard the lives of my children, and during his service Michael has risked it all for his family and his country.
Saying thank you to our service members almost seems cliche because it is such a small gesture. I hope recognition as a supreme Father serves as a thank you to Michael. We appreciate your service and thank you for all you have given up in service to your country.
Here is what his wife, Kim has to say about him:
Michael is a loving, devoted & loyal dad. He leads by example by living his life by putting God 1st, then family and then his country. He serves in the United States Air Force and is Owner/Operator of Turtle DJ Entertainment, but is never too busy to give hugs & kisses or chase the kids around the house & play with them. If anyone is in a bad mood or having a bad day, he will be the one to make them laugh. He puts everything of his on hold to change Cassidy’s oil in her car, go to the boys’ baseball games, help with homework and play the same card game with Jordan over and over again. There is nothing Michael wouldn’t do for his kids. He is a true hero and one to be looked up to and admired.
