The best time was spent on a 5 years tour with the gang unit. I was actually one the 1st 4 original members assigned to this unit. There were over 20 assigned when I left to go back to patrol .
The time that I spent on the dive team as a search and recovery police diver kept my adrenaline levels off the charts at times. Worked my regular patrol job until the pager went off calling us out for a dive mission. Spent 22 years as an active diver with the department.

Damn... time flies by quickly.
Lord, diver had to suck balls badly down there
things that truly can not be unseen
Congrats buddy, I could not do that
