    I am writing this to commend all of our law enforcement.We have several current and retired here on our site.My hats are off to you all.I have family and friends in law enforcement and they deserve a big THANKS every once in awhile.I am sure that they could tell stories that a normal person would cringe.But they get up every day and put the uniform on to protect us.So next time you are out and about and see an officer walk up to them and tell them thanks.
    The following link is to a friend and officer who gave his life to protect us.

    Brian, it really feels good to have a bunch of folks on the site that are willing to stand up and say "Thanks". July 1, 2008 I'll start my 27th year, having served as a municipal officer, deputy sheriff and now as a state investigator. Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I only have 163 days remaining. Going to try an pull the plug Dec 31. Course then got to find a job, can't live the lifestyle I have gotten accustom to on retirement, but we have a new sporting good store opening early next year. "What you mean they will pay me to walk around in all this fishing stuff?"

    My father was a policer officer. My uncle and his family were in law inforcement. Even though my father was a sheriff in a small farming community, I still worried about him while he was on duty. He did his job to the fullest and people respected that. My hat is off to the people in law enforcement. They have to deal with everyday issues that are very stressfull, and that means alot to me. Next time you talk to someone in law enforcement, do tell them thanks for what they do.

    Thanks.

    Mark.

    I was in law enforcement for four years and let me tell you it is no walk in the park. Just the other day I had an old co-worker tell me that he was shot at while driving down the road. He turned the car around and started to chase them. They were arrested and book into jail. My hats off to the law enforcement community who risk their life every day for us.

    One of the most important building blocks of our free society. They do have trouble finding enough men and women who are right for the job, but to those that ARE there for the right reasons, THANK YOU.
