A Father’s Guidance: Featured Question with Forrest
Mike, I can’t think of anything, unless it’s that my father was a strict disciplinarian. I received my share of spankings, and although none were painful, they indicated that my actions were unacceptable to my father. That still stings some.
Then when I became a private in the Air Force at age 20 that discipline continued. Peer pressure was strongly against some of my antics so I stopped doing them. The final straw may have been when I filled out a questionnaire. Among the questions were: Height, weight, sex? Unfortunately, my answer to that last question was, “not very often.” Well, I was cited for making a, “facetious remark on an official Air Force document.” They put me on KP for a month and I NEVER made that kind of mistake again.f
