  1. I read a short bio of Sheriff John T. Wilcher and was surprised, and delighted, to see that he and I both served in the navy from 1961 to 1964. The sheriff’s recent actions in firing a racist employee in his department also made me feel proud as an American to see a law enforcement officer uphold the highest standards of humanity and fairness under his watch. I hope Sheriff Wilcher’s devotion to duty and honor serves as an example to all law enforcement agencies and, indeed, to all of us regardless of age, occupation, ethnicity, or race.
