Derrick Brooks

Austin, MN

I am nominating my brother Derrick. Derrick is a wounded veteran and lives on a fixed income. Derrick has 3 children ranging from Age 1 to 16. Derrick doesn't let his situation ever get in the way of him providing for his family. He is constantly sacrificing his personal needs and wants so his children can have the best life he can provide for them. My brother is an inspiration to me and very deserving of any break he can catch. Derrick always brings a good attitude and focuses on his family. Derrick is involved in his son and daughter's baseball and softball teams. He personally gives his time and energy to help those around him. Derrick may not be able to give huge monetary sums but, he gives himself to those around him.
