I realize now that he really is pretty cool. He is now a bush pilot in Alaska. No, really. look.
That's him sleeping on the wing of his plane. Oooh and check this out...
When he showed me this picture I tried to call him out and say that he photoshopped himself into it, which he vehemently denied. He has more pictures so I guess I believe him.
He was in the Army Rangers, and for a long time I thought maybe, just maybe, he never actually stopped being in the Army and was a super secret spy for the real Uncle Sam...hey I was young and lived on a farm. I had to make my own intrigue!
I really think every child should grow up with an Uncle Sam. There was always an interesting story for us a Christmas...stories my Mom didn't want us to hear, and that only made it all the more interesting!
