    DH just left for work. He took the service patches off his uniforms with him, to take to the embroidery shop. The reason? The service patches currently have 5 stars on them - one star for each 5 years of service as a police officer. It is time for the sixth star, as he has entered his 30th (and last, if I have anything to say about it!) year as a law enforcement officer.

    I'm so proud of him! [​IMG]

    That's awesome!

    My dad finished 25 years last summer and we were so proud of him, but also VERY glad he retired. We were so used to his crazy schedules and it's wonderful to have him home all the time.

    That is so awesome. Please tell him THANK YOU for all of years of service. And THANK YOU for being the wife of a police officer. I know as a retired military wife it is hard so I know it is hard for you too. So once again I thank you both.
