I’m sorry I don’t have a whole lot for today, but Suffer did send me an amazing story we know folks will love.
Today, a dream is realized for Chris Lawrence as he will be sworn in as Chula Vista, California’s latest Police Officer. While that’s not much of a story for most folks, it’s an amazing realization after 10 years of hard work and dedication- the same kind of dedication that Chris gave to his job as a Marine in Iraq, until an IED exploded and critically damaged his feet and arm, which ultimately resulted in his right leg being amputated.
He’d always considered becoming a police officer when he got out of the service, and while his physical limitations kept him from his dream for a while, after years of training, determination, and help from a fellow Marine Vet… is it too much for me just to give a huge “YAY!!!!”?
I know, it’s not dignified, or tough like a Marine.. OK, Oorah!!! is more fitting.
Well done Officer Lawrence. God bless and keep you and all our Boys in Blue safe. Thanks for that story Suffer, I know it made my week.
God bless all our Troops, keep them safe. Thank you to all our troops and veterans, for your Service. You all are exceptional.
Have a blessed day all.
