Awesome. Former Marine? Less surprising, but no less awesome."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Way to go , Keith. Your only as handicapped as you want to be.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"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.

I see things like this and it makes me ashamed for ever thinking or saying "I can't..."*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

My good friend lost his leg in motor cycle accident as well. He recovered from it and is back doing police work. It was really the most painful and inspiring thing I've seen in my whole life, watching him go through the loss of his limb to being back on the job.
As a matter of fact, this past weekend we were with our police explorers at a competition and I complained about how my knees were bothering me because of the cold damp weather and going up and down stairs all day. He looked at me and smiled. I remembered who I was talking to and shut the hell up. lol"If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton
