We’ve felt blessed since becoming aquatinted with this man, Glen Huber, last month. We were asked to organize a liquidation auction of a rural school that is closing, and in the foyer of the school hung a huge US flag and this framed picture on the wall. It caught our eye after recognizing the NMSP uniform, and since we, too, are New Mexicans. Glen Huber was a NMSP officer and sadly was killed in the line of duty after he was ambushed in 1991. The flag was presented at his funeral by President Bush to his mother and hung in his memory at the little school where she had taught. We did a little investigating on Facebook and asked a few friends at NMSP and were able to contact Glen Huber’s daughter, Penny. She is so proud of her dad. We will honor him by sending the flag and the framed memorial to her. It is said that Glen stood 6’ 10”!! Big shoes to fill, I’m guessing. Thank you for your service, Sir.
