... this email below has made writing a column that is not just online, where niche-reading is the norm, but in local newspaper papers across the country, very gratifying as a writer.
The email-writer, who is in law enforcement, tells me he was having service work done on a Ford cruiser in small-city USA when he came across my column in the local paper lying in the lounge.
As a veteran police officer with 27 years of experience in the field, I just wanted to thank you for an article that speaks for the police and soldiers. I could not believe I found an article that was actually based on facts and common sense rather than the typical knee-jerk reaction of the ill-informed. It is always those with the loudest opinions who have never defended the people of our nation that are the first to judge, having never been in our shoes.
