Hello, my name is Derrick. I'm an Army Brat and Army Veteran who is grateful to have served this wonderful country where a even a plow boy can be whatever he chooses to be with enough determination and support. I've moved around all over the place. Spent high school in Georgia and lived in Hawaii for a time.
I take life as it comes, pursue positive opportunities and do my best to make great things happen out of obscurity even though others may laugh me off and say they can't be done. "Greatness is to accomplish things thought impossible by other men." (My mother) Life is not always so simple but I strive to remember the cherish the journey! :)
I love the Gospel and am grateful for the blessings that it brings me. I share the feelings of the Prophet Joseph Smith when it comes down to it.
"The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done." - Joseph Smith, Jr. (Wentworth Letter)
