    Gotta Brag... forgive me...

    My Son graduated from South Carolina's Criminal Justice Academy with both the Distinguished Graduate Award and the J.P. Strom Award (given to the Cadet with the highest cumulative point total on the written tests and passes all proficiency tests).

    He resumes work as a Patrolman Sunday... I told him.. Vacations over...get back to work! [:D]

    Here he is accepting the J.P Strom award. (J.P was considered the "father" of modern law enforcement in South Carolina)

    Is he one of the guys in a suit? He made detective already? Just kidding and congratulations. It's always fun to brag about your kids.

    An old friend of mine once said,"He who does not tooteth his own horn shall have his horn remain in a perpetual state of untootedness". Go ahead and toot away, he has earned it. Congrats.

    Hey, I won the "Most likely to be reading a book and/or sleeping when the apocalypse comes" award, does that count for anything?

    Congrats, you've obviously raised a fine young man, and we're glad to welcome him to the LEO fraternity (and sorority, of course).
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    If he stops me for speeding is it OK to drop your name so he will let me off with a warning? I know you are proud of him and we need more Patrolmen in SC that care about doing things right.
