Got the chance today to hold up Officer Brandon picture today in the St Jude Memorial March. It was an very honoring moment for me being an African American and seeing the reaction on Officers face as they pass by and saw Officer Brandon picture. I will never forget this day I’m proud to have become an Police Officer March 2018. After holding her picture all morning I got the chance to do some research on Officer Brandon she is now my Hero and idol. Thanks for your service and my condolences to your family
