Old Friends and Brothers

I had the honor this morning of having an early breakfast with one of my college classmates and someone who I have respected since the day I met him.

“Chief” is a retired USMC Colonel and current Senior Law Enforcement Officer. He is one of the wisest men I’ve ever known. He is a dear friend and I trust him with my life.

As we often do, we talked about a wide range of things. The military, America, friends, family, and the challenges that America is facing.

He reminded me today in his quiet special way that despite all the challenges our Nation is working through, America is, and will, remain the greatest country in the world.

Thanks Chief.
