I wish my head could forget the things my eyes have seen - PTSD in First Responders.
12/02/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
The Gods were not happy with me. I had handed in my notice with my previous Fire Department after going through a nasty divorce and becoming a single father of my five year old son. The new department offered much better pay and the all important Kelly day needed to take care of my little man. The day in question was my very last day with the County.

Why suicides among police and soldiers show no sign of stopping
11/22/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Police and soldier suicides persist. Assuredly, soldiers are under significant stress abroad and here at home. Fighting nemeses in foreign territories, while sacrificing family-time to defend our nation, undeniably exacts a heavy toll on our military service-members. Domestically, ensuring freedoms and defending constitutional rights is compatibly rife with duress, yet cops suit-up daily.
