Michael was nominated by his daughter, Jennifer :
My dad is a retired Chief from the Navy. He spent 24 yrs serving his country and would never have had it any other way. He is my role model in many ways. I wouldn’t change him being my father any day. He has always been my hero. I couldn’t think of another way to show him my appreciation other than to nominate him for Hero of the Week. He has been a wonderful father and husband while doing his duty to his country. I am very proud of him and wish him a great retirement. His family is lucky to have him and I’m sure he knows it.
