Whether it's local, county or state police, these men and women have chosen a career path that necessarily puts them in harms way every day. If we sometimes seem to take it for granted, know that you are appreciated and revered by us and others in our community. Thank you.

If you'd like to nominate one of these servants for recognition, Hometown Heroes is just the way to do it.

This is a video I got from a friend who's husband is a police officer in California. This a very poignant reminder to all of us that, for these heroes, the end of watch could happen at any time, without warning. There's also a link to Harry Herington's (Rolling Memorial, ride across the US) below. He joined us on the show last August...I took a nice digger off his motorcycle ;-)
