Forged in Scars & Stripes; A Trooper's Victory Over Critical InjuryBy Sergeant (Ret.) Robert E. Bemis with Michael J. Asken, Ph.D.
What is service? Is it about giving your time to help those less fortunate? Is it about providing a commodity in a courteous manner? Does the word conjure up images of heroic actions or selfless charity? What does it really mean to serve?
Making a commitment to serve your community as a Police Officer is both personally rewarding and extremely hazardous. Forged in Scars & Stripes is the real-life account of one man's dedication to service as a core value, and how devotion to duty can have a personal cost to the individual and those he loves.
Robert "Bob" Bemis chronicles the career of a State Police Sergeant that was abruptly altered when he came to the aid of a distressed citizen. Surviving catastrophic injury, Bob tells of how love and support from family, friends, medical professionals and a fraternal bond shared between law enforcement officers gave him strength and a new purpose in his fight to return.
