Who do you admire in this organization?
“Hands down my husband. He is also employed by the City of Springfield (Police). He is an amazing person, and I have yet to meet a person who thinks otherwise. His job as the range coordinator doesn’t end when he comes home. He is always taking phone calls or responding to texts and assisting other officers/colleagues when they are seeking firearm help or advice. He NEVER complains about that aspect of his job. He makes me a better person!”
