Like I always say when people express their thanks to me, thank you for the confidence and trust you put in us. I consider it a privilege and an honor to serve alongside my fellow Troopers, some of whom have sacrificed life, limb and eyesight, and all of whom have sacrificed a lot of time away from their loved ones, long hours, and stressful days / nights out in the field. I’m lucky to work among such upstanding individuals.
I’d like to offer a gentle admonishment. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but your post left out our brothers and sisters in the Reserve and National Guard.
