Paul, Thanks for looking me up. I am honored to be your friend. I see you are a training officer as well. I'm sure you've been at it for much longer. I've been teaching for 4 years and training officer for 1. Tremendous challenge making it make sense to new guys, making it interesting for old guys. Thanks again. Stay safe.
I see a familiar face just below. My bro Barry is from Cresson, PA. I'm from Cresson, TX. We've linked our departments.
