Today I did something different and special: I had the honor of attending the graduation ceremony for the 131st Cadet class of the Pennsylvania State Police Academy. My cousin is a new state trooper! He's wanted this for so long, and had to wait a long time to achieve the goal - not because he couldn't get into the academy right away, but because he received his deployment orders from the Army halfway through the first round of training. But now his dream has been made into a reality, and he will start his new career in a few days.
So congratulations, Curtis - you've achieved something great, and I know you're going to be an awesome trooper!
