Link To Our National Anthem
I am a Veteran and have served my country in a war that some reduced to a conflict.
It seems to me that it becomes real easy for folks to forget the price that is paid when our First Responders and Veterans try and do the right thing and stand in the gap for a member of the community who they don't even know.
I was sent a link to the background info for our National Anthem. I invite you to listen to the story and you won't ever listen to our National Anthem the same again. Pray for our First Responders and our Vets as they deserve this moment of prayer. It's the least we can do today!
Thank You for your Service and Support. First Responders we love you.
Thank You Vets and First Responders for your willingness to make things right and stand in the gap for the community.

Notes from Chaplain Jim
My wife and I enjoyed some great days on vacation camping and enjoying a family reunion in South Dakota. On our way home we traveled through the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming and through the Teton National Park stopping in Jackson, Wyoming – Wow what great scenery and awesome views. There were some obstacles along the way – bears, moose, elk, deer, cattle – PEOPLE!
With the good comes some challenges and perseverance is developed – it’s a good thing! Perseverance is developed so we can have perseverance! Resilience and perseverance help the tuff keep going! Unfortunately, we usually have to go through challenges to accomplish the perseverance but once we get there we develop integrity and ethical stamina!
That’s what I’m watching in our agencies and families that our chaplains are caring for presently. We go through some yuk and it makes us stronger and more determined.
I couldn’t be prouder of our First responders – Dispatchers, Fire Fighters, EMS, Medics and Law Enforcement. Our LE is getting a lot heaped on your plate – You Gals and Guys are awesome to say the least – you keep going and serving and supporting the community.
COPC is very proud of all three counties of LE and the State Police that we take care of around the State. We are honored to serve alongside you.
I have a lot more to say but no space to put it in. We Love and Appreciate you all. We Honor you and your service. “Blessed are the Peacemakers they are identified as the children of God” Matthew 5:9
