    Had a few that I was told I did really well on some tough cases. But two really stand out other than that.

    One was my first arrest, when I had a pursuit when I was in FTO. My FTO was riding and I was driving. This guy tried like hell to ditch me but he couldn't lose me on the back ass country roads. Most of the guys that run from us don't think the city PD guys can drive in the country even though it's a rural area and almost all of us grew up here. At the end of that I was the only car when it ended, but my backup was my father (Same department, and was on the same shift) There was something cool as hell to see him come rolling up while I've got the guy proned at gunpoint.

    The second was an off duty thing where there were four guys in a car running around the county lighting barns on fire. There were only two deputies in the county and it was close, so I grabbed my gear and hopped in my truck, called my buddies working county and told them I was out. A couple hours later I catch them coming from another fire and follow them until the cavalry gets to us and takes em down. By the time all was said and done there were 9 or 10 barns destroyed in two different counties and probably 40 cops out looking for them. I got a huge "atta boy" from both County Sheriff's and the FD guys.

    Well I must say the first proud moment was when I was a rookie and I can still see it as it happened last week. In 1974 i received a call to a residence where a female was threatening suicide, well she was also going to take her two childern with her.This was before SWAT,negociators or bullet resistant vests, so I get there and find her husband drunk as a skunk at at 0800hrs. well my sgt got there and back-up. I talked to the woman through the door and gained entrance into the bedroom where she was. I was able to talk to her for about 30 min. and was able to have her hand my the .38. All was well kids went to school, old man went to jail for being drunk(this was before domestic violence laws). Yup on of my best moments.No atta-boy, no good days just pure satisfaction.

    My proudest moment was,,,, walking in the door at home after a STRESSFUL day at work,,, a pursuit, car crashed, suspect came up shooting, he put one through my windshield and another one at me. He lost the gun fight. A deputy and I ended his miserable life. I am not proud that I took a life,, I am proud that I was able to go home that afternoon.

    My proudest moment has to be the day one of my students came up to me and said "Cap'n, I want to thank you. Something I learned in your class saved my life last night. Throughout the whole fight all I could hear was your voice telling me what to do and telling me not to give up."

    I damn near cried. I had said the same words to my mentor about 8 years prior to that incident. It's why I became an instructor in the first place.

    Proudest moment? About 25 years ago I went to a child abuse call. This 3 yr old blond haired, blue-eyed child had a bruise on her back from Mom's boyfriend beating her with his belt. The Harley- Davidson logo from the buckle was clearly visible. The child told us who did it then said "I can roll a joint! Wanna see me?" I told the babysitter & her we were going to take her someplace where he could never do that again. the little girl hugged me so hard she almost choked me. That alone makes it all worthwhile.

    If I had the time when I was on patrol I'd stop by I'd stop by to watch the kids playing ball in Boy's and Girl's Club or Little League. There was this one boy that never had any family there because they were too busy getting drunk. I made a point of finding out when his games were and tried to stop by at least for a few minutes to cheer him on. My proudest moment was when this boy grew up and got hired in LE, went to the academy and then asked me to pin his badge on. I'm so proud of him.

    When I first tied my own shoelaces and they stayed done up. That was last month, nothing much has happened since.

    I have caught many "WANTED" people in my time and foiled a few evil plots, but then again thats what I thought thats what we were paid to do. I believe my greatest moment is everyday that I get to come to work, put on that badge and do the greatest job in the world. I serve in a community of some of the best people I have ever met. I felt the same in the Army, when that uniform was on, it was something bigger then me. Strength and Honor

    And in case you don't speak Latin.......If you want peace, prepare for war.

    I've been places, seen and done things that would make most cry. I've fought along side and against better men then most I come across day to day, i've put my life on the line more then once for things you take for granted and for those you have lost respect for. I don't tell you this for your pity or respect but for you to remember me.

    Being in 7 International Karate Mags.
    When I graduated from the Academy.

    I Know, Im not a Cop, but being on LEF and among Law Enforcement friends, that is a blessing in my life.

    I will always respect and honor you all for keeping Us all safe!

    To the Fallen Officers, I believe they can all see us, and they are so happy that we are a family here!

    Besides my wife and son, I never had a family..

    Now a story from the new guy....

    I got a call that a 2 month old infant wasnt breathing, and I was right aroung the corner. When I pulled up the mother ran up screaming, handing me her lifeless baby. He wasnt breathing and didnt have a pulse, so I did CPR for approx 5 minutes until EMS arrived. The ER Doctor told my Sgt the CPR kept the little dude alive.
    Turns out, the father shook the baby so hard his little heart stopped. He was 2 months old and had a broken leg, cracked ribs and vertebrae damage. Anyway, he is alive today. That is my proudest work related moment.

    I just remembered another moment that gave me a warm and fuzzy. Several years ago I worked a domestic between parents and a daughter. They had been going on and on and weren't getting anywhere with their teenage daughter. So, they call 911. I get there and I'm met by the parents, and they invite me in. When I get inside I notice a little girl who is happily coloring away in her coloring book at the kitchen table. Me and the parents go into the back of the house to the teen daughters room and I do my stuff. I try to figure out what went on, why was she showing her butt, etc. And the truth be told, I don't remember anything about that conversation now. But what I do remember is that little girl and her coloring book. When I got done and started to leave, she came up to me. She pulled on my pants leg to get my attention and says:"Thank you peeseman for making my family stop fighting. I made something for you." And she handed me a duck that she colored in while I was there. Here is a pic:



    I keep that duck in the same binder with all my awards and certifications and to be honest, that means more to me than anything else I have in there. Moments like those are few and far between in LE. But those are the ones that keep me going.
