A Letter from a U.S. Marshall

Here is a letter from a U.S. Marshall: Thank you Jeremy for YOUR Service. “Ever since I was a young boy I had wanted to be a member of the elite U.S. Navy SeALs. To this day, at the age of 37, I still have hero worship when I am around those guys. I enlisted in the Navy in 1994 and suffered an asthma attack (which I lied about to enlist) during a swim qualification. I was crushed to know that my dream would never come true so I pursued the closest civilian route that I could take: law enforcement. I was a member of a SWAT unit for over 5 years and eventually became what I believe to be the best of the best, a Deputy United States Marshal. During my career as a law enforcement officer I have had the pleasure and what I consider, an honor to train with some of Adam’s comrades. I grew up having recruitment posters of SeALs on my wall rather than sports figures and I now teach my children that these elite men are real heros and not some guy who can score 30 points in a basketball game. I am currently asssigned to Little Rock, Arkansas and intend to visit the Hwy 70 bridge where Adam made his famous leap and also place a flag at his headstone. God bless you all and thank you for sharing Adam’s story with the rest of the world.
