Just wanted to say thanks to all the people who were here when I first joined back in 2008 that gave me advice and helped me get going.


I just got word that in May I will be awarded the 2012 100 Club Rookie of the Year award.


For those of you not familiar with the 100 Club, more specfically the Houston region club, its an organization that takes care of families of fallen LEOs and Firefighters, however they also hold a yearly award banquet. It encompasses 18 counties and a couple hundred LE agencies, so to get one of the two (or possibly 4 spots) Rookie of the year spots is a pretty big honor and alot of people here helped me out along the way and gave me advice.


So I just wanted to say I appreciate it to everyone who helped out and offered a helping hand. To many to name, but two in particular helped out big time and still keep in contact, The Sarge and Retleo, so special thanks to them.


And yes I know, I dont come around much anymore, been to busy frightin crime.....or something like that, lol.....but I havent forgot about you guys.

Congratulations on the award Matt, although I must say that I am not surprised.  Your zeal, dedication and love for the job make you a natural for such an award.  I am proud to count you among my friends and brother officers. I knew "back when" that you would be a fine addition to our Law Enforcement Community.


Once again, CONGRATULATIONS!
