Dad to the Bone: Corey Neal
Tell us a bit about who you are?
Got a full family of 5 kids (4 step-kids, 1 biological). Currently serving the military in the Special Operations Community out of Ft. Bragg, N.C.

What makes you a "Bad Dad" (This is a good thing... AKA Way too awesome compared to everyone else)?
I am not afraid to become a kid with them again. I am the dad that is always in the middle of the action. I am the one is showing them how to be a daredevil, but also the one picking them up when they fall. A Bad Dad is more than just being fun, its about being an example of how to treat other people, especially their mother. It also means being open-minded and accepting, no matter the things that make them different.
