My father was in the army but was born in germany and served the United States for 22 years. His name, Hubert Ester E-9. Was MSG "Big Dog" Ester for Old Ironsides. I am very proud to be the daughter of a vietnam Veteran. He was killed in 1981 home on leave. Moving from place to place was hard but was a great experience. My father was a fighter and loved being part of the United States.
