Military Dad makes daughter a camouflage prom dress

I know this an old story but I think it is timely for Memorial Day as this girl will have this dress to cherish for all time as a reminder of her father and something to pass on to her little girl in the future.

From foxnews.com:

When Wisconsin teen Mariah Herron found it too hard to track down the camouflage prom dress of her dreams, she turned to her own fairy godmother: her father.
Not content with the fluffy pink dresses her peers at Marshfield High School were sure to wear, Mariah, 17, sought a dress that reflected her individuality and affinity for hunting and wielding power tools, the Marshfield News-Herald reports.
Unable to find the right dress in stores, Mariah asked her father for his help.
"My dad is pretty good at making things, but making a dress -- that's different," Mariah told the paper. Her father, David Herron, learned to sew while serving in the military.
