Please watch this story about Michael Rodriguez (@monsterzdad), a great man whom I'm really proud to call my friend and fellow American. Learn more about him and his wife Kelly, also a veteran, in #PortraitsOfCourage .
Meet Michael "Rod" Rodriguez, who comes from a long, proud line of family members who served their country. He was deployed 9 times over 21 years, and learned a surprising trade in his recovery. He is one of the veterans featured in President George W. Bush's new book "Portraits of Courage."
