MORNING BUZZ:In the Line,Catching up and DUDE!
Good Morning... A little catching up to do from the weekend mixed with a little news... In the Line Two incidents involving Police officers remind us of the risks they potentially face every day. Marshalltown Officer Vern Jefferson was awarded a Medal of Valor for his actions in stopping two bank suspects. Urbandale officer Zack McDowell pulled a teenager out of a burning car. Neither man thought his actions warranted any notice. My guess is you don't last very long as a Police officer if you join in search of daily heroics. The job is probably more mundane and not glamorous at all. The men and women worth celebrating are those who act with quiet professionalism in their every-day mundane duties and then step up when called on a crisis.
