Today is the 24th anniversary of me losing a hero. Last night I left for work leaving my wife and 2 kids at home. I was looking forward to a calm night because it was my "Friday" and I had my 3 year old daughters birthday princess party in the morning when I got off work along with football and some adult beverages with friends and family. About 30 minutes into my shift I was faced with a life and death situation. Fortunately for me, I survived and I have a huge feeling (I KNOW) that ARTHUR P. PARGA had something to do with that. Art never had a chance to meet his daughter and he made sure I was going home at the end of watch to be with mine! Thank you Art for being there for me and all of our brothers and sisters trying to keep the peace. I MISS YOU ART!
