Role Model

My father, Frank N. Henson. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy on his 17th birthday and worked his way up the ranks retiring as a Lieutenant Commander at the age of 41. He served in the Korean War and two tours of duty in Vietnam. He worked hard to stay at the top of his classes so he could choose where he would be stationed to ensure his family was taken care of during his deployments. He always put his family first.
