Too bad the “pens” story by Sawdust2 is full of untruths and outright lies. You would think a lawyer by profession would get his “story” straight. Check it out on the county records that Steve was not so good a father as professed. His child support was over $12,000 in arrears, and although he may have taken his kids on the weekend and for vacations every year, his alcoholic lifestyle and abuse of the wife was what kept him from getting custody. Notice also how this lawyer/woodworker portrays the ex-wife as the wicked witch probably because she was a very upstanding, church-going mother who raised her children correctly. Sounds like sour grapes from a lawyer that has a poor reputation in the community and lost his case. What this lawyer/woodworker also didn’t tell you is that the son wanted to be a Marine because he couldn’t wait to get out of his father’s house because his father wouldn’t quit drinking. I’m sure there are other details that are less than truthful, too. Looks like there’s always another side to a “story”. The good part is that the Marine is an excellent solder and serving his country well. We should all be proud of the marine, in spite of his father and his father’s attorney.
