The hat has been officially passed down to the next generation. Master Trooper Leroy retired from his position after serving 31 1/2 years as a Kansas State Trooper.
We went to Leroy's retirement party yesterday. By the number of attendees, we can tell he was well respected.
Joshua spent most of the time at his grandpa's "Achievement" display. At the end of the party, he inherited his grandpa's hat with the promise that it must stay in our house. Joshua wore it the rest of the party and looked at it often on the drive home.
Congratulations on your awesome work and your retirement! We are so proud of you grandpa!!!
