In a fitting conclusion to the Memorial Day week and thanks to the efforts of AD Puente, Inspector Harper and Erica Wagner, we have dedicated the ODOP EOC to the memory of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle--As a personal note that is both ironic and tragic, I was scheduled to shoot with Mr. Kyle in a law enforcement firearms event sponsored by DFW law enforcement the day following Mr. Kyle's terribly unfortunate death--In our own way we will work to keep his spirit alive here at ODOP
