  • A Salute To All Guards.

    To those Officers who are true professionals.

    Who are viligant on patrols, checking for burned out lights,

    opening in fences, keeping an eye for intruders, fire hazards,

    checking on the well being of employees at your site, making

    sure offices are locked up.

    Thank You to the Security Officer who receives a frantic
    call from the wife of an employee at a factory where you stand
    Guard, and he needs to get home in a medical emergency, and
    you comfort with soothing words that he is on his way home.

    To the Officer at a lobby in downtown Detroit, Boston, Atlanta,

    or Toronto. Who is in a blazer and tie, shined shoes, looking

    sharp, who helps a visitor or guest, and checking brief cases,

    and checking for badges.

    To the Officers who work the GateHouses, whether it be at an apartment complex, at a trucking firm, or at an Industrial Site. Good job ! How many times has someone driven through the gates? How many people have given you verbal abuse when your just doing your job

    To Security Officers who work at factories and Industries that are in the process of closing down. Not an easy task. Double back on a patrol,
    because the motor at the furnace just did not sound right to you.

    A tip of the hat to the Security Officer who works access control at an Office builing checking employee's I/Ds and are verbally accosted by some young executive who is late to work, and you stop to ask for their I/D and they verbally are abusive to you, because your only doing your job,and now they are even more late, and yet you keep calm and are pleasant to that young executive.

    And let us not forget our Officers in Hotels in Montreal.

    LP at a shopping mall in Baltimore. Thanks for being
    alert and vigil.

    This is for the Security Officer who does

    rounds in sub-zero weather, with wind factors

    well below zero checking fence lines, and

    working in blizzard conditions in Boston.

    Out in bitter cold rattling door knobs to

    make sure they are locked.

    And it is 3 o'clock in the morning

    This is for the Security Officer who

    works inside a Gate House in Miami

    in 95 degreee heat, and oppresive humiditity

    at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and no a/c

    in the Gatehouse

    Working too is the Officer in Tulsa or Topeka

    where there are forecasts for tornados.

    Hats off to the Officer in Los Angeles "shaky town"

    following an earthquake.

    And let us not forget the Officer in

    New Orleans who reports to work

    with a Hurricane Katrina.

    A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL OF YOU Greatest Comedy team ever!

    Nicely done. I think we all can see ourselves somewhere in that salute.

                  I reported and stay 2 and half weeks after the strom. I was forced out by the National Guard becuase I didn't have letter from the Mayor Office giving me the authority to be in the area. So I took week of R & R my company got the papers, so i could get me thu check points and i was back on duty

                  Also we in state company so we thoughit the strom would just blow over and miss us thats why we didn't get paper start with but my boss learned. Now we have letter on file so just have get Mayor Office sign it and we on our way.
