Rest in peace Trooper Whiting.

On the exact date, 23 years ago today I was involved in a shooting incident that could have taken my life as well. Thankfully I was able to recover from the shooting but had to retire shortly after. I will never forget this date nor will I ever forget Trooper Whiting who paid the ultimate sacrifice on this same date.
