My Two Cents: A Nation Divided

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This article is strictly my opinion and does NOT reflect the opinion of the staff, management or sponsors of Clarksville Online and it’s partners.

I’ve just finished watching President Trump’s speech from the oval office.  I watched it online and watched in horror the HATE that has consumed this country and is perpetuated by all of us in some form or fashion. 

I’m no expert and I’m not trying to change the world, I’m just trying to enjoy life, my family, my grandsons and my faith. I want ALL of us to do good, to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.

Clarksville-Montgomery County, Fort Campbell law enforcement share tactics through training

 

Written by Pfc. Lynnwood Thomas
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionClarksville, TN – The 163rd Military Police Company Special Reaction Team recently participated in a unique interagency training opportunity with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Unit and the Clarksville Police Department.

Although military and civilian police only work together in extremely rare situations and when approved by Congress, the training provided a chance for the police officers to compare techniques and learn different perspectives of law enforcement operations.

“We’ve never had enough people to do a multiple objective hit all at one time, but working with Montgomery County and CPD gave us enough – that was definitely something we’ve never done before,” Spc. Dylan Shipley said. “It basically became one big team, and it worked out well.”

In answer to that bold call, and consistent with the NASA Transition Authorization Act of 2017, NASA recently submitted to Congress a plan to revitalize and add direction to NASA’s enduring purpose.
