It's been almost (2) years & not a day passes whereby I forget. I've slowly transitioned to Family life out of uniform. MANY things I miss; none more than my Friends. Questions arise whether I did right by leaving. The answer Always comes in the face of my beautiful children.
Times have been unfair to our LEO Brethren, Our God has not changed and He shall have the last word. The're times when all the public rhetoric makes me angry due to opinions made; I departed Honorably and your Sacrifice shall not be in vain.
I will care for my wife & children teaching them Proverbs Chapter 1. I will never Forget or Abandon the Oath I took as a young man, in times as these I will "encourage myself with the Lord my God" 1Sam 30,06.
I will strive for the level of Professional Integrity you set and I will not forget those Brothers who like me have transitioned. After all Chief, this is our life.
