sister, Mavine (a place in Shetland) was born on my Dad's 40th Birthday. All the
family were there apart from my sister Gladys, who, as she lives in Shetland, the ...

I was always "Daddy's Girl," and I missed him so much when he went away on his many trips with the British Merchant Navy. As I grew up, our close bond continued. While he was away I started writing him wee poems, letting him know what was happening in my life. On a recent visit with him, almost 30 years later, he went upstairs and returned with a bundle of papers in his hands. When he handed it to me, I saw the poems I had sent to him all those years before. He said he would like me to have them. I know these poems aren't the workings of a great laureate. They are just a window into my life as it was nearly 30 years ago, a little effort to let my dad know that he was always in my thoughts even though he was so far away.

To succeed at the highest level of any profession requires not just skill, but also confidence and mental toughness. Many men and women have natural skills, but many would also be the first to say that without the affirming love and support from their fathers or a father figure, they would not have made it to the top of their fields. In That’s My Dad! authors Joe Pellegrino and Joe Battaglia look at father models, both positive and negative, that helped to shape the lives of successful men and women in the competitive worlds of media, arts and entertainment, and professional sports. Included are: • Joe Girardi, Manager, New York Yankees • Allan Houston, former NBA all-star and Assistant GM, New York Knicks • Gretchen Carlson, Author and Fox News commentator and host of “The Real Story” with Gretchen Carlson • Jeff Kemp, former NFL quarterback • Lee Rouson, former NFL Running Back • Michael Franzese, former New York mobster with the Colombo crime family, inspirational speaker and author • Tina Cervasio, New York television sports anchor with Fox 5 and ESPN radio sportscaster and commentator • Darryl Strawberry, former Major League Baseball All-Star, ordained minister and author • Frances Hesselbein, President and CEO of The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute and former CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA • David Tyree, former NFL wide receiver with the New York Giants • Roderick Caesar, senior pastor of Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, Queens, NY • Chris Broussard, ESPN and ESPN.com basketball analyst, writer and commentator • Kelly Wright, FOXNews reporter and co-anchor of America’s News Headquarters • Rita Cosby, television news anchor and correspondent, WABC radio host, and best-selling author Whether these role models were hurt or helped by the choices of their fathers, they have chosen to learn from their past and portray exemplary qualities like courage, honor, joy, authenticity, and integrity to make them the role models they are today. This book demonstrates the power of true fatherhood and the difference it makes in the lives of children. All of us want to, or yearn that we could, stand up and shout, “That’s my dad!”

This book is written to honor those men who so gallantly fought during the 77 day siege of Khe Sanh that started in January 1968. Where 5000 Marines and 1000 South Vietnamese Army Regulars stood fast and held their ground at President Johnson’s request. We give special tribute to the men from Bravo company 1st platoon 1/26 Marines who assaulted the trench in front of our perimeter and nobody came back alive. Our lieutenant (FO) forward observer and his radio operator didn’t make it out alive either. I also want to give special tribute to the 42 Marines who’s C - 123 that was shot down coming back to Khe Sanh and crashed on the side of a nearby hill. We had 3 men coming back to A Btry 1/13 on that plane. Two were coming back from previous wounds and one was coming back from R&R. their names were Larry Kennedy, George Elliott III and the third I could no longer remember his name. To my younger brothers who is also a Vietnam Marine Veteran Gilbert Ramirez. To the Marines from A Btry 1/13 who stood fast and hand artillery duels with a very aggressive enemy. They say that there was thirty to forty thousand North Vietnamese all around us. How can I forget my neighbor Tony Zavala who grew up with me and we ended up on Hill 10 together after we were ordered to abandon Khe Sanh. I believe everyone who fought during the siege of Khe Sanh should get a Bronze Star because they were all hero’s; could some congressperson make that happen; during an upcoming Veterans day ceremony.

A young child starts off this laugh-out-loud board book by listing all the ways his dad is NOT a superhero: he can't leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out of his wrists. Each page illustrates how Dad doesn't have super powers but is still a hero at heart. The sweet ending depicts all the cool--if not super--activities Dad does do with the child, like throwing a baseball, playing checkers, and going toy shopping. Spot-on artwork perfectly accompanies this super funny and super sweet story. Praise for Ethan Long: "A nicely illustrated tale that speaks volumes about the bond between a dad and his son...a great story that will be perfect as a gift for any dad or son." --The New York Journal of Books
