I Am A "KINGS" Baby With A Dream

John Wallace Isom Jr aka The U-Can! Man's Dream:
"Helping People"
July 27, 2010, 1:50 a.m.

"A living dream, continuing to be true and alive." In October 1982, in Freiburg, Germany, the U-Can! Man (Private John Wallace Isom Jr) was asked by the military Educational Advisor, "What is your life dream?" I remember saying, at the age of 18, "I want to help people." That dream was born in me before I joined the Army on May 10, 1982, and lived through me during my 25-plus year career that ended on December 1, 2007. My dream was consistent, no matter how I was (or wasn't) treated. Now, three years after my retirement, God is granting me the DESIRES of my heart (Psalm 37:4) and keeping the U-Can! Man's dream alive. The dream was and is simply this: "I want to help people." Now, what is your dream? Is it true and alive today? Do not let yourself get sidetracked. People may be depending on your dream coming alive and staying alive. U-Can!
-The U-Can! Man

"Mr. Wes Taylor just paid me a personal visit.  He congratulated the girls and I for our win this weekend and also shared a wonderful story.  The county office received an email from an elderly couple who was shopping at Tanger yesterday.  During their visit, they were having some issues with the drink machines and some of our girls were nice enough to stop and help them.  They were not sure who to contact so they emailed the board office to let them know how thankful they were for their help.  I have not identified the girls who performed this good deed but I wanted to thank you all for raising such sweet girls!"
