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!
