My former captain is in the hospital where he had major cancer surgery last month. They removed a large portion of his liver among other things. He is not doing well at the moment however the doctor says that he will do everything to keep him alive. The doctor says that he should pull through but that he can expect to be in the hospital for the next six to eight MONTHS! This really sucks! He no longer works for our dept but works in a neighbor city (only about a mile away) and remains close with all of our guys. We are having a benefit dinner for his family next month. There is also a Facebook page for him if you are interested. Does anyone have ideas for auction/raffle items at the benefit? Maybe the Baumshoe guys might like to donate something? here is the link to his page:

I'm sorry to hear about the cancer.
An idea for the auction.....maybe some sports items such as NFL team hats, shirts, mugs, etc.http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

May God bless him and his family.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
