My favorite quote:
“The world sleeps peacefully at night because of good men willing to do violence on their behalf”
As many of my readers know, there is a strong link between America’s military and our police forces. A significant percentage of the officers that patrol the nation’s streets also wear another uniform. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard or reserve, we owe them all a debt of gratitude.
Most Americans will never serve in either capacity. That is just fine with these “double” heroes; their calling is as much personal as anything. Over and over again, I have said “goodbye” to officers as they shipped out to a new war zone. This time the fighting is thousands of miles away, and more dangerous than we could imagine. Yet our police officers continue to park their patrol cars and pick up the Humvee keys.
I just want to say “THANK YOU,” from a greatful nation and a fellow cop. Be safe out there.
