Master Mason Brent Thompson a Dallas Police Officer was murdered yesterday in Downtown Dallas, Texas. He was on duty protecting the lives, and Constitutional Rights, of Black Lives protesters during a lawful march demonstrating their grievances.His life was taken by a Sniper who was filled with hate who is now no longer with us...
Brother Brent was a seven year Veteran of the Dallas Rapid Area Rapid Transit Police, He left a wife and family. He was a member of Corsicana Lodge #174 in Corsicana, Texas
Brother Brent's death is a senseless tragedy. He is a hero for defending other citizens constitutional rights. He paid the supreme sacrifice to support, and defend clause of his oath.
As a retired Cop of 33 years it always seems to me that the Cops who are killed are young, and have kids...Its hard to refrain from expressing my opinion, but I will say this, if the Dallas Police Department needs funds to replace R2D2 give me a call. I'll deliver the check personally.

Two weeks ago I was installed as the Commander of Richfield American Post #435. We have 1400 members. I was informed that there were no preparations made for the annual 4th of July parade. So with help we scrambled and prepared food,found bands and tents for the fireworks.
But who do you call when you need help..a Brother especially Wayne Fanjoy from Minnehaha Lodge who owns a 1952 mint Willis( other wise known to many as a Jeep) Wayne made the time in order for our July 4th presence be a great success. He had to scramble to get to another parade 9 miles away. If you dont know it...A willis Top speed down hill is 50mph. Driving at 30 is a speed experience...and a joy!
Brother helping Brother and Thanks again Wayne
