    My husband is the best father & husband in the world. He has always been a hands-on-dad and he is super close with our boys. He has always put us first and him last. He has instilled values in our kids and shown us all what love is. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and I can’t wait to experience another 25!

    My dad has worked hard all his life, building his company from the ground up, whilst instilling those values in his kids. Tustin As It Once Was would be perfect for him!

  3. My father was a member of the Greatest Generation and earned a Purple Heart during World War II. He rarely talked about his wartime experiences, since they were so painful for him to recall. I recall, however, Dad watching a TV newscast about a Nazi war criminal who had been located living in the United States. “Hang him! Dad said in a quiet voice. “Hang the bastard! I saw what they did!” Had he participated in the liberation of a concentration camp? I dared not ask Dad, though. I had no desire to make him discuss a chapter of his life that held so many horrible memories. Dad enjoyed reading Civil War history. I would read the “Antietam” book — and recall Dad while doing so!

  4. My dad would really enjoy any book on brewing Beer. He loves to make his own home made beer with this kit he got for last fathers day. I love my daddy an awful lot and since I don’t have a job yet this would be a perfect way to show him that I love him bunches on this great holiday.

    My dad was in the military for 43 years and was highly respected by his men but always made time in between deployments and training to be involved in our lives. He particularly liked history and would really enjoy The Arnold Scheme!
