Konya! Once again, a "drive by" posting--lot of life changes since last I wrote. Lost my beautiful wife of 25 years in May to a heart attack. Screwed me up for a while, but I'm doing OK nowadays. Her passing allowed me to go for a position that I'd passed on previously (largely because she would have kicked my ass around the block if I'd taken it!): Police Advisor in Iraq. Sooo, I just passed my 2nd week at Camp Shield, Baghdad, working with the Iraqi Police. I'm here for a year, working with some great guys (former state, local and federal law enforcement), but there ain't no doubt "We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto"! Hope life's treating you well and that you're having a super Christmas Season!
To all my PL friends, All the best wishes for the Christmas Season and for a great 2010! As we all know, the last couple of months has been difficult for Washington State law enforcement, with the loss of the Seattle PD officer and the 4 Lakewood officers--so my most sincere wish is for all you active LE folks to stay safe and watch your 6! All the best, Jim
