'He is my hero'
This is my best friend Mike Towner. We have toured over to Iraq and Afghanistan together and I am so proud of him. He is over in Baghdad right now protecting me and this country. As I was a hero for my family when I was there last year, now that I am out the Army, he is my hero now.
