He remembered the struggle of his son as an immigrant.
When a communist dictatorship threatened to force Felipe into military servitude at the age of seven, he left Nicaragua with his mother in November 1988 to start a new life with Asman.
Even though Felipe found it tough to speak English and adapt to the cold weather, he soon grew to love America and his new family. He was also interested in joining the U.S. military.
Further, into the story, Asman recounted his proud moment when Felipe became a U.S. citizen while fighting for his country in Iraq. He concluded the story with a blessing for his stepson and all the immigrant patriots.
As much as you love your son or daughter or grandson or granddaughter...be at peace with the incomprehensible truth that the Creator of all things loves you and those you love even more. pic.twitter.com/7RTKojES20 — David Asman (@DavidAsmanfox) April 27, 2021
In a Twitter post dated November 2021, Asman recalled a heartfelt moment he had with his stepson regarding his interest in the military, quoting,
When I asked him why he would be willing to sacrifice his life for a country that bungled his papers, he simply told me: 'I want to earn my citizenship.'
