    Salute to troops

    My Dad Rocks as a Hero!


    My dad is Major Ben Krepps, and he serves our country in the Army. He's been in the Army for my whole life, so far. There are many reasons I love my dad. He knows how to skateboard, makes awesome pizza from scratch, and knows how to do lots of martial arts. But the coolest things about him are that he is a soldier and a great dad to me and my three little brothers.


    I made this video to salute my dad and to thank him for his service to our country. It hasn't been easy on me to share my dad with the Army. His service to our country takes a lot of his time. It also takes him all over the place and away from me. I try to remember that if he can make the sacrifice, then so can I. His time in the Army is almost done, so it is important to me that he knows that I am really proud of him. I'm so thankful for all he does for our family and to take care of other soldiers, especially when he was deployed to Iraq.


    I know that every single soldier is courageous and a hero, but my dad totally rocks as my hero every day. I love you, Dad, and I can't wait to see you soon.
