“For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be in law enforcement. I had settled on this goal when I was very young. While other children were bouncing around between what they wanted to be when they grew up, I knew what I wanted to be — originally a California Highway Patrolman. I wanted to drive a police “chaser” car and go really fast with the lights and siren blaring en route to and from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. I grew tired of waiting for my number to come up to attend the academy, which led to my decision to join the Air Force first and return as a veteran. Lo and behold, I ended up staying for over 21 ½ years.” – Dave
