Stevens family

My Dad is a hero. He's a soldier.

I think I have the greatest Dad in the world. He is one of the nicest people I have ever known and he is also a true hero. I won't get to be with my Dad this Father's Day because he is in Iraq this year. He flies Blackhawk helicopters for the National Guard. He is a great pilot and I know he is doing something very important for our Country. I miss him a lot but I do get to talk to him on the computer a lot. This is the second time my Dad has been to Iraq. When my Dad is home he does a lot of things around the house. He is very smart and can fix about anything. I love my Dad very much and even though I won't get to see him this Father's Day I hope he knows how much I love him and miss him. Hannah Stevens (age 12)
