I have a special place in my heart for our nation's military servicemen and women: both veterans and active duty personnel. So, it's with great pride and gratitude that I am able to add a portrait of my own dad, Robert J. Haverstick, to my "Faces of Freedom Project."
Dad served in the United States Air Force as an aircraft electrician. He never talked much about it as I was growing up, but I've had an opportunity over the past few years to learn more about his service.
Thank you, Dad, for your service. I say that both as your son, and as an American who appreciates the sacrifice of men and women like yourself in the service of our great country.
