A hero comes to us in many forms. He or she could be a superstar, a football player, a rockstar, or a multi-millionair. But to me, a real hero is someone who does not ask for recognition or fame. He or she does not ask for news reports of his daily contributions to society. I believe that a hero is one who gets up everyday, puts on his uniform, kisses his wife and children and goes out the door.He has an American Flag flying in his front yard. He is protecting those who cannot speak. In our city and surrounding area, he protects Florida's natural inhabitants, the fish and wildlife of our great state.
Doesn't sound so impressive, huh? Oh, we know so little. This man will try to rescue a box turtle that has become the latest sport for some kids and their bikes. He will give the tortise a burial rather than leave him to rot on the road. The dogs that are dropped off and abandoned in his area, he will try to contact rescue groups for these animalas, rather than certain euthinaisa.
He will patrol, all night if necessary, to find the owner of an abandoned vehicle at a city park, rather than lock the gate and leave a person stranded.
This mam's devotion to family and country are inspiring. His grandfather served in WWII. He keeps his memory alive, through his WWII Jeep restorations & relationships with WWII vets.
This man is Officer Robert J. Lentz of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
I am proud to call him a friend. I am proud to call him an every-day hero!
