Charles) was my father, and was born in Stockton in 1924, and worked in Stockton his entire life, he served in WWII and fought in the Battle of the Bulge, was awarded a Bronze Star for bravery, and a purple heart. E. Charles attended KU in Lawrence and Washburn in Topeka, and was an attorney and abstractor. E.

God Bless those first responders and men and women in Blue and law enforcement. It is unbelievable that many in our country would ever consider defunding or dismantling law enforcement agencies. God Save our Country from those who would turn our country into a Socialist society and shred our Constitution, attack our Free Speech, Right to Bear Arms, and remove God and religion from our lives and schools.
