Brothers in Arms

Brothers When most people hear the word “brother”, they automatically think of a sibling. Webster’s Dictionary defines it as a male who has the same parents as another or one parent in common with another.

There is no greater feeling (in my eyes) than to say you’re part of a brotherhood that helped build a nation. I think this feeling of being a brother extends to local area law enforcement and...
