Don’t Forget to Thank a Vet

NR-LOD-SM_highesthonor_part1

As the week of Veteran’s Day comes to an end CopsAlive.com salutes America’s veterans and says “thank you” for your service to our country.

Please join us in saying “thanks” to those serving in our armed forces and to our veterans.

To remind you of the kind of people it takes to keep our country safe on foreign shores please watch part I of the NRA Life of Duty video entitled “Highest Honor” Presented by Brownells.

This video is one of their Patriot Profiles presented by the NRA and Brownells on their Life Of Duty Channel website where they profile law enforcement and military heroes with their stories of courage and heroism.

Highest Honor Part 1
Dakota Meyer is a country boy who grew up amongst the corn and tobacco fields in the rolling hills and lush farmland of Columbia, Kentucky. Awarded the Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest honor for courage and valor, he was thrust into the spotlight of celebrity and nothing in his world could feel less heroic or less honorable than that.

NRA Life of Duty serves and supports individuals who go to work protecting and defending the safety of the American people. This network was made for you – the ones we count on to fight for our freedoms every day. We hope this network becomes a great source of information and a powerful voice for the heroes who live a life of duty, each and every day.

Part II will be on the way soon.

CopsAlive is written to prompt discussions within our profession about the issues of law enforcement career survival. We invite you to share your opinions, ask questions and suggest topics for us in the Comment Box that is at the bottom of this article.

At The Law Enforcement Survival Institute (LESI) we train law enforcement officers to cope with stress and manage all the toxic effects and hidden dangers of a career in law enforcement.

Our “Armor Your Self™: How to Survive a Career in Law Enforcement” on-site training program is an eight hour, hands-on, “How to” seminar that helps police officers and other law enforcement professionals armor themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually to survive their careers in police work.

The concept of “True Blue Valor™” is where one law enforcement officer has to muster the courage to confront a peer who is slipping both professionally and personally and endangering themselves, their peers and the public. It takes a system of organizational support and professional leadership to support and foster the concept of courage and intervention. We will train your trainers to deliver this program to your agency.
