POINT 27 WITH SHIELDS OF STRENGTH
I attended Police Week this year (2016). One of the stores was handing out your Thin Blue Line dog tags. I grabbed some for my grandchildren, their moms and myself. We are Police Survivors. Those tags meant so much to my family! When their Dad, Sgt. Chris Eney, a US Capitol Police Officer, died in the Line of Duty in 1984, our two girls were only 11 and 9. The minute I gave my girls and their children the dog tags, their faces lit up and they all put them on immediately. When my family wears their tags and someone asks them about them – they are able to tell them someone they loved was a COP. Someone they loved was a part of the solution, and not a part of the problem. Someone they loved was a part of all that is decent and honorable and intrepid about America.
