    Veteran Family


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sfo322001 is pictured here with four of his five sons prior to his military retirement in 2009. 'My sons have taught me to be faithful, to ensure that I tried my very best to lead by example. They taught me patience -- to always listen to them because they're important too.'
    - Jamescia, CNN iReport producer

    Four of my five sons are military, one Marine, one Army and two Air Force. I myself spent 29 years in uniform serving this great country. Early in their lives my sons were taught honor, integrity and love of country. All have served faithfully and deployed numerous times to Iraq, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Afghanistan. We consider serving in uniform one of the most dedicated professions that one can do - to all those serving, my sons and I salute your service. To all those who gave all, we will never forget your sacrifice. May God bless their families and may He also bless this great Nation.
