Before joining the military and getting married, Patrick would tell you that he was a hooligan. Yes — a hooligan. He wouldn't have blamed anyone else for thinking so, either. We, however, thought Patrick was pretty great from day one. Then again, we got the post-military-Patrick. That may have something to do with it.
At any rate, we think you're going to like him. (And don't worry, he's got all of the hooligan out of his system now.)
Patrick joined the National Guard at 18. He served two years active duty, then four more years as a weekend warrior. He's quick to point out that he loves strong coffee, running, burritos, technology, the outdoors (especially the Smoky Mountains), his country, and especially his wife and family.
