Thank you all for another year of following the PC Blog. I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and a SAFE holiday season. A special thank you to all of the firefighters, police officers, and military personnel who will be keeping us safe this weekend!
Sometimes it seems like I am writing a military blog, not a cop blog! As I have mentioned in previous posts, these two families are so closely tied; many of our officers are serving overseas, and many soldiers, marines, and sailors become cops when they return.
That is just fine with me, as they are the finest women and men I have ever known. Proof? Check out this emotional entry on the outstanding cop blog, the enforcer’s roll call notebook.
Why the hell won’t mainstream media publish these stories? Continue Reading
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.
