OWASSO — Sgt. Anthony Peterson possessed a passion for his faith, family and country, his father said.
“We really weren’t excited about him deploying this time because he was a single father, raising (now 6-year-old) Dakota,” Garth Peterson, Anthony Peterson’s dad, said in a telephone interview Friday. “But he was a person who wanted to hold to his commitments. There was a place in his heart for his country to do what was right.”
