Military families have to make incredible sacrifices. The soldier-parents miss holidays and birthdays. They miss anniversaries and family events. It is tough not only for soldier – but for their children too. Addie Rodriguez’s dad, Senior Airman Michael Locklear, was not able to attend a cheerleading event at her school.
Central Catholic High School in San Antonio, Texas had asked the dads to come join their daughters during a routine. Addie was the only one without a dad. Then out of nowhere a teenagedboy, a fellow student, jumped the fence and ran over to Addie – he stood in for her dad that day!
Take a look at this video
People in the audience were stunned. I am proud. I am proud that this young man, Matthew Garcia, stood up and did something for another person. He helped Addie in her time of need. Watch the video! My heart is happy.
Share away, people.
