Description

My father’s name is Alan Johnson. He was born in the year 1957 in Royal Oak, Michigan. He told me that his first job was a caddy at a country club but he didn’t know how to carry the clubs so he just brought them in from peoples cars. He told me about his most vivid memory, which was christmas. He talked about how today growing up with technology is much easier than when he was a kid. He told me how during the Cold War nothing was different but during Vietnam he had to get drafted. He talked about joining the military and what he did for them. He told me why he moved to Chicago, when he met my mother and why he decided to marry her.
