"Before I went on a training or combat mission, or taught my soldiers anything, not a single soldier ever asked, Are you a Democrat a Republican, or an Independent? Questions were always regarding what was needed to get the job done." Please like his FB page #CTcares
In honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, Micah, has been doing 24 Ride-Alongs with 24 Cops to highlight the positive of who and what Law Enforcement Officers do!
Please taker a moment to listen to our first interview, this tells you a bit about Micah and all he is doing to spread the message of hope and kindness. The second interview recounts and incident in Wethersfield, where during his scheduled ride-along, a hit and run occured, killing one dog and injuring another.
Meet Ret. Sgt. First Class Micah Welintukonis
He was injured by a suicide bomber on July 9, 2012 and was medically retired. He is a hero, although he wouldn't call himself that. He insist he was doing his job to help his fellow Americans and serves our country.
From Micah: Right now I’m riding with Wethersfield Police. This is just one example of a hard part of policing. A vehicle hit two dogs and took off with a flat tire. CT law requires you to stop if you hit a dog. Police are looking for a newer black Jeep Wrangler 4 door with mud tires. It was last seen on ridge road. If you see the vehicle please contact the Wethersfield Police Department at 860-721-2900. One dog is dead and the other is in critical condition.#24RideAlongs24Cops#TheThinBlueLine
