I am nominating my Son-in-Law Morris as he is an upstanding and loyal man that served his country and still will if asked to. Morris takes charge in whatever he does and gets the job done exactly asked of him.

Morris is constantly staying active in his community as well as being a 100% Caregiver to his wife that has MS. He also cares for their 3 wonderful children bringing them to baseball games, parks and the beach. He should be Nominated with his compassion and the love for his country. He always says that if there is ever a day that he is needed back he would go in an instant. During the November storm he was able to rescue his wife and help and aid in the recovery of his neighbor that fell off their roof."
