Thank You

Today Lt. Brad Stark and I met U.S. Army Veteran James McKinney. Mr. McKinney came to the Sheriff’s Office and asked for our assistance. He explained that he hadn’t had anything to eat and he was thirsty. He also needed help to get his Florida identification card replaced. I called our friend Bruce Swinford, at Big Lake Mission, who provided James with lunch. Brad and I then were able to help him replace his I.D. card. Thank you for your service Mr. McKinney! Please do not forget our Veterans. Our pay it forward… Michele Bell, PIO
