The selection committee read nearly 200 essays about great fathers and grand fathers who are making a difference in the lives of their children and country.
Dylan wrote the following about his grandfather :
"My Pops makes me feel amazing and loved when he spends time with me and sits down and talks to me. I like when he plays with us kids. He helps his family and does everything even as he battles Parkinson's disease. .. He helps everyone, like neighbors when there was flooding. If it wasn't for POPS I would not be the young man I am today!"
