The community has every right to know who is hanging around their kids...I wouldn't want him around mine.

I've since retired, but for five years i was Oscar's supervisor at Fort Dix, NJ. He was a straight-forward guy as well as an excellent worker.Recently, I thought of him, typed his name on my Blackberry and saw the "coaching" article. I was surprised and happy to see he married and was still clean.
I'm a USMC combat veteran, I've earned a
Master's Degree and supervised inmates for 11 years. ALL of my achievements COMBINED do not compare to Oscar's remaining clean.
In closing, If you read this Oscar? Just know that you NEVER have to defend yourself again-just say, "hey, take a look at my life, you might learn something".
