5. Name one of your heroes and tell us about him or her.

"My Uncle Kern, my mother's brother, grew up in small town in Tennessee. He lost his father as he entered West Point, served gallantly in World War II, and was captured as a POW. My uncle sponsored the immigration of one of his fellow Yugoslavian prisoners to this country. He saw this family prosper and grow. He served a world-wide military career before becoming mayor of his town and serving others. He was always bigger than life to me and so loving to everyone."
