  • My father, he grew up with 11 brothers and sisters, his Mom died when he was 4,,my grandfather had came from Germany, and they were dirt poor, my Dad didn't even finish the 8th grade, he left home worked odd jobs, joined the Navy, fought in Korea, and then opened his own business. He is the best father anyone could EVER ask for,, he used to get beat with a belt, denied food , all kinds of horrible stuff, instead of making him the same way,, he vowed NEVER to let his children go through what he did,, he is the BEST!!! He will be 80 this winter and still as awesome as ever!

  • Only one? How bout a set? My parents are my heros. They have made it thru soooooo much & are still very much in love. Their marriage has been a great example to me of how to work together to overcome the difficulties life throws @ you. Thru it all they stand united. I put them thru sooooooooo much shit as a teen, then my brother did, then my sister did. Thru it all they maintained their poise, grace, & undying love for us. No matter what was going on or what I did I knew they loved me, supported me & would fight on my side against any body who was trying to harm me. I only hope I can be 1/2 as good to my dd as they were & still are to me!

  • The man who jumped in the Potomac after the 1982 plane crashed at the 14th street bridge to save the flight attendant from the freezing water. He didn't think about the danger to himself; he did it because he couldn't stand watching that woman fall back into the water from the helicopter rescue attempt again. He rescued her and then went home. He didn't want interviews, He didn't want his name known. He even said afterwards it was probably the stupidest thing he had ever done. He just didn't think it through at the time. It was selfless. Bravery in the face of fear with no expectation of reward. That is a hero. Pres. Reagan thought so too.

  • I cannot pick one. I also avoid putting people on pedestals because it is a lonely place to be.
