When ever I see … “MEN in BLUE” – – I know that we can feel safe – – because … just their presence at any event – – indicates to the large crowds – – that if anything at all happens – – we will have the “MEN in BLUE” right there – – they will know exactly what to do – – should there be a need – – and… all will safe and secure.
This is an old PHOTO – – could be at least sixty years ago – – and on the right side – standing is LEE ALDRICH with the Fifth District… and the back side of this photo … does not have the name of the Police Officer standing on the left side – – and no note as to this event.
Just was thinking that – – when there will be a large event to take place – – it is always a very good idea to have SECURITY GUARDS to work at your event – – so that everyone taking part in the event and all of the paying guess to this event will feel safe and secure. In the above PHOTO… something that caught my eye was the revolvers on the POLICE OFFICERS’s hip. Just seeing that the GUARDS at this event are armed – – and that they are POLICE OFFICERS – – means that this should truly be a secure event.
What really makes you feel safe at any event is the fact – – that the vehicle you came in and had to park… could be blocks away from where you will be enjoying an event – – but more than that – – is the situation … when events – – that are in the evening – – and sometimes in the late hours – – when it is very dark – and you are now in need of finding your car – – you could feel all alone – – but then… there is an OFFICER with a large flash-light – – and ready in a moment to give you all the HELP that you need.
This is just a memory of LEE ALDRICH – – and all that he meant to me – -but now is no longer here – but his birth date will never be forgotten!
