We have had programs in the Auditorium before, but nothing like this, ever. There were over 1300 in attendance including the FBI Director James Comey, who personally prioritizes this program.
I would like to personally thank some people now that I am done with this adventure, which was the most challenging and enjoyable training or education ventures I have endured. The first is my Chief, Alan D. Baldwin, who personally values continuing education and training; without his endorsement and support this would not have been a reality. Next the entire Seward Police Department for their professional and dedicated work that makes me proud to be part of the department every day including in my absence. Arguably most important my amazing wife, Jenny, who now for the second time had to handle things without me for a sustained period of time. Everyone in law enforcement knows how important spousal support is and to have it to the degree I do is truly a blessing and I thank God for her everyday. My children, Parker and Tyler, have been a great help to Jenny and strong while I was gone which made it easier. I would also like to thank my father, Charles Hammond, who told me when I was small that I could do anything with hard work. His guidance through the years has been a key to my success. All of my friends and family have been supportive and helped Jenny when needed which is also appreciated.
I also couldn't help but feel the support of my late mother, Virginia Hammond (d. 6/6/07), who was raised in Hagerstown, MD, not far from Quantico. She was an amazing woman and instilled values that I still cherish today, love you Mom.
Well, that's all folks, I hope you have enjoyed the blog, I enjoyed it though at times it was time consuming. It isn't the best one out there, but probably my best effort.
