Border Control

Yesterday, when I heard a border agent was killed my stomach dropped. A very good friend of my sister's (and subsequently a friend of mine) recently went though Border Patrol boot camp is now serving as an agent somewhere in Arizona. Then they released the agent's name: Brian Terry. Not our friend. But he's someone's friend. Son. Brother. Husband. Dad. So I wanted to acknowledge him. It's weird to feel relief when you hear a name of someone that was killed...

Our friend and agent, Matt, has promised some guest posts once things slow down a bit for him. He promises he has things to tell that will enthrall...things the average citizen just might not know about what these border patrol agents encounter on a nightly basis...

RIP Agent Brian Terry.
