Sorry to hear of this, Bitches in Blue. Many people don't realise that there are a lot of police officers working in Afghanistan and Iraq in various capacities, either as Army Reservists, as `civilian` trainers, Intel, etc. I have old chums out there and in Iraq too. Good for you to post this up.

I was very shocked to hear about MSG Medina's accident! My BDE Commander, BG Pratt, went to go visit him in FL and I was glad to hear that he is in good spirits.

He is definitely in my prayers. I just learned of this accident and he is such a good person and chicago police officer that I will pray for his well being!!!!

Hi Pedro-

I am very sorry to hear what has happened to you, I was trying to send you an email to see how you were doing and it got sent back to me so I was concerned and had to look into it further. I was able to find out what happened from this site. I hope you are getting well, you have many people who support you and wish the best for you. You are always in our prayers.

Warm Regards,

Nikki Lee, forever your friend.

Is there anything you can recommend that we can send or do for Pete.
A video or a poster or a card that he may enjoy and know that he is thought of and prayed about here back home???
He is such a great person and only the best and a recovery is wished for him!
If something is sent to his Police District how long before he receives it?
