Del Ackerman is seen in portrait in his store Friday, Jan. 3, 2014 at Del's 24 Hour Store in Naples, Fla. Ackerman's store celebrates 50 years in business and one of the oldest business establishment in Naples. "We've been opened since 1964 and never closed," Ackerman said proudly. Over the years he has been known to support those needing a second chance "What good is jail?" Ackerman asked. "Unless it's murder it doesn't make sense â" I've been given second chances in life. If an employee steals from me I make them pay back three times the cost and give them one more chance." Ackerman also has been a huge support of the U.S. troops driving his patriotic 2003 Chevy SSR and through donations, "They are important because you and I wouldn't be here today if they did not fight for us," Ackerman said. "I feel they (veterans) have been mistreated."
