This big guy is our hero because he not only takes care of his family but he also protects others. He is an outstanding Soldier, as well as, a great father, husband, son, uncle, brother, & friend. Richard also stands out as a positive role model & he strives to better himself daily. I just want to thank him for being so selfless & also being a person that helps make this world a better place. We love you & thanks for everything. Love Cooper, Jada, Kori, Kirsten..
