Incredible story. I was talking today with a rookie about the "ripple effect" of how both the good and bad we do in uniform continues long after we have moved on or even quit serving. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool, thanks for posting. Stay safe out there guys. The holidays seem to be more rough this year in my AO, at least so far.

Don't know if I love that video or hate it, but it sure brought a ton of unhappy memories of coroners cases past which I worked on many a Christmases, the unexpected ones were the worst. Be safe out there to all, and to all who will have to summon the courage to make those notifications God bless you.

I always ask the question of why.....why do so many people die during the holidays? It seems that suicides go through the roof, elderly people die at an alarming rate, and people get very sick with cancer, etc all during the christmas season.

I always told my guys to be extra careful during the holidays as it was the silly season....crazy stuff happens
This job isn't dangerous enough....I need to start milking rattlesnakes and jerking off tarantulas on my lunch hour.
