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!”

My Dad the Runner

He turned into our driveway. Seconds later, another car drove up the driveway. I
ran up to greet my dad. Instead, as I arrived, I saw the undercover officer draw his
gun and shout, “Stop Mon, or I'll shoot' that's what thepolicecalled my Dad'Mon'.

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.

'At 28 years old, I found myself living at home, with my 73-year-old father. As a child, my father never minced words, and when I screwed up, he had a way of cutting right through the bullshit and pointing out exactly why I was being an idiot. When I moved back in I was still, for the most part, an idiot. But this time, I was smart enough to write down all the things he said to me...' Meet Justin Halpern and his dad. Almost 1.5 million people follow Mr Halpern’s philosophical musings every day on Twitter, and in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his sayings. What emerges is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father and son relationship from a major new comic voice. As Justin says at one point, his dad is ‘like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair’; and this is the sort of shit he says... ‘You know, sometimes it’s nice having you around. But now ain’t one of those times. Now gimmie the remote, we’re not watching this bullshit.’ ‘Happy Birthday, I didn’t get you a present... Oh, mom got you one? Well, that’s from me then, too – unless it’s shitty.’ ‘Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn’t stand for shit. Just sat there. Big let down.’ ‘The worst thing you can be is a liar . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but THEN, number two is liar. Nazi 1, Liar 2.’ ‘Why the f**k would I want to live to 100? I’m 73 and shit’s starting to get boring. By the way, there’s no money left when I go, just fyi.’

My Dad, My Mate and Grandad The year is 2014 and quite remarkably my father will be 80 in July. After a near miss in 2009 when he nearly left the planet due to heart failure I started to think about the impact and contribution my dad has had on my life and the fact that at the age of 43 I am comfortable with myself, like myself and am happily married with a great wife and three great children. At the time I was wondering whether I might have to say a few words when he wasn't here, although I know he knows how much I appreciate what he has done for me I thought it would be nice to write a story that he could read for his 80th Birthday. At the time of starting I have about 6 months to complete this task. I'm backed by the ability to touch type, but it's going to be a tight timescale given the usual business of life, three kids, work and football! Here goes....

‘Human beings fear the unknown. So, whatever's freaking you out, grab it by the balls and say hello. Then it ain't the unknown anymore and it ain't scary. Or I guess it could be a sh*tload scarier’ Sam Halpern Soon after Sh*t My Dad Says began to take off, comic writer Justin Halpern decided to take the plunge and propose to his then girlfriend. But before doing so, he asked his dad's advice, which was very, very simple (and surprisingly clean): 'Just take a day to think about it.' This book is the story of that trip down memory lane, a toe-curlingly honest pilgrim’s progress of teenage relationships, sex and love by one of the funniest writers at work today.

Families need a mother and a father for good mental health development. When one parent is missing, a child often does not get what they need to emotionally grow or feel helped. As young boys grow into young men, they look towards their father or a male role model to give them guidance. Mothers cannot always give a young man what is needed to grow into a man. Brandon had been in school for three years and thought his classmates were being dropped off at school by their moms and big brothers. While in second grade, Brandon finds out that his classmate's dad is the man that drops him off at school and not his big brother. Brandon tells his classmate that he does not have a dad. He goes home and confronts mom about where his dad is.
