3 PRESIDENT S BENEFITS CORNER Summertime Opportunities By Robert Masson RSA President Hamburgers and hot dogs on the barbe-que. Taking the boat out on the lake or river. A day trip to the beach. Most of the images that pop into mind when thinking of summer involve relaxing and being with family. Maybe it s our childhood association with summer break, or just the fact that it s too hot to do anything more constructive. It s summer, it s what we do. Even better, it s good for us. Life is precious and it s our connections with our families that help make it so. We have opportunities throughout the year to bond with our kids and spend quality time with our spouses, but summer is the only extended time of year where we tend to have a string of opportunities to do that. This past May the law enforcement community recognized and honored our fallen comrades in memorial ceremonies across the country, including here at home in Riverside County. In this issue we feature the Riverside County Peace Officer s Memorial Ceremony. We honor the memory of these brave men and women because they are heroes to us personally, to our profession, and to the communities they served. I feel as though summertime gives us an opportunity to immerse ourselves in Relax! It s summer. the very thing they, and all of us, took an oath to protect: our communities, our families, our way of life. As we move through the memorials we are reminded at what cost that oath sometimes demands, but also how valuable it is what we safeguard. This is a stressful job, that s no secret. I urge you to take the time this summer and enjoy yourself. There s a reason why so many poets and authors expend words on the lazy joy of a summer afternoon, the dog days of summer, because this time of year gives us permission to throttle back, slow down, and relax. The author F. Scott Fitzgerald said, And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer. Summer is upon us, it s our opportunity to begin life over again. Be safe and God bless!

4 CHARITIES Visiting The Littlest Warriors Corky Bell Executive Director, DCMF, Retired RSO Corporal April gave us the opportunity to bring a bit of happiness to some wonderful kids who really needed it. Our visit to Loma Linda Children s Hospital was warmly received as always, and the kids loved seeing our men and women in uniform from Riverside and San Bernardino County Sheriff s Departments. You could see the toll their treatments are taking on their little bodies radiation burns, loss of hair, loss of body weight and weakness from vomiting during chemotherapy. All sad parts of fighting cancer, but when The Debbie Chisholm Memorial Foundation shows up, the kids put it into another gear because they know we bring nothing but joy. Twelve year old Abigail (pictured with Corky Bell) received bead making materials because she loves being artistic. Abigail has fought so very hard to beat her cancer but unfortunately she will lose. Alan, a nine year old Downs Syndrome patient fighting cancer, was given a DVD player and Winnie the Pooh Movies by Riverside County Deputies Vincent Coogan, Norma Loza, Mike Lucero, RSA President Robert Masson and Mrs. Jennifer Sniff. Robert Masson also surprised fifteen year Christina with a new ipad Air, a pair of Solo Beats Headphones, $100 in itunes cards and a homemade quilt compliments of Mrs. Elizabeth Magee-Thomsen. Jennifer Sniff presented seven year old Erik with his favorite toys, Minecraft Legos and a homemade quilt. Erik said he would give the quilt to his Mom for her birthday. RSA Office Administrator Judy Drott, along with DCMF Board member Kylleen Coogan, visited nearly every child in the 4800 wing and made them all smile; they loved their time with the children. When you see children like Abigail, Alan, Christina and Erik, you just have to thank God for the wonderful healthy lives we have been blessed with and pray that childhood cancer will be cured in our lifetime. Thank you RSA and your wonderful members who continue to support The Debbie Chisholm Memorial Foundation and for giving us the opportunity to help these special kids forget their fight with cancer for just a little while.

6 RIVERSIDE COUNTY MEMORIAL CEREMONY MAY 18 A Time To Remember And Honor The 2015 Riverside County Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony Story and Photos By Lauren Hampton Contributing Writer Downtown Riverside was the backdrop for the annual Riverside County Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony. The Safe in His Arms Memorial Run and Ceremony was held on May 18 th to honor all Riverside County Law Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Fallen officers honored were from as far back as Frank Hamilton, who perished in 1895, to the most recent loss of Gilbert Cortez of the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation who was killed in the line of duty in Runners, including groups from current academy classes, explorers, fellow officers, and even family members and friends, were escorted by Riverside Police Officers around the downtown route, ending at the Safe In His Arms Memorial statue which was erected in May of 1983 in front of the Riverside Police Department s Orange Street station. In keeping with tradition, current officers from the respective departments stood, one by one, as each of the 62 listed officers names was called. A K9 officer was there representing San Jacinto Police Department s canine Officer Sultan, killed in the line of duty on the 21st of January Surviving family members read the Honor Roll names. The ceremony, held after the run, began with a symbolic riderless horse, escorted by Deputy Lance Deforest of RCSD. Sheriff Stan Sniff and Riverside County s District Attorney Mike Hestrin honored the fallen, their colleagues and surviving family members by delivering powerful and heartfelt speeches. Also included in the ceremony was a 21-gun salute by the Corona Police Department Honor Guard, Taps and flag Folding by a Multi-Agency Honor Guard, and bagpipers from the United States Border Patrol A helicopter fly-over by California Highway Patrol, Ontario Police Department, Riverside County Sheriff s Department, and Riverside Police Department was an impressive finale to this solemn and heartfelt ceremony, which serves as an annual reunion for those who share this same loss.

8 NATIONAL PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL National Peace Officers Memorial Story and Photos by Julie Kelley RSA Executive Assistant The Nation Mourns Each year the RSA selects members of the Board of Directors, as well as RSA members who are selected through a random drawing, to attend the California and National Peace Officers Memorials. This year I had the privilege of accompanying the team to the National Peace Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. Although it was not my first trip to the Memorial, I am still profoundly moved when I see the two 304-foot-long walls engraved with more than 20,000 names of fallen officers who have been killed in the line of duty throughout U.S. history. The names on the wall date as far back as This year another 273 names were added, with 117 of those deaths having occurred in The Annual Candlelight Vigil was held on the 13th of May at the Memorial Wall, located in the 400 block of East Street, Washington, DC. Among the distinguished speakers this year were Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson, and U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. One of the most stirring speeches at the vigil was given by Madeline Neumann, National President of Concerns of Police Survivors. Ms. Neumann is the surviving spouse of Essex County NJ Patrolman Keith E. Neumann, who was killed in the line of duty on August 3, Ms. Neumann shared what it was like to suddenly lose the love of her life so many years ago, and how her life has been forever changed. Ms. Neumann noted that when her husband was among those being remembered at the candlelight vigil held at the same spot 26 years ago, the memorial site was nothing more than a patch of dirt. On May 15th we gathered on the Capitol lawn with thousands of officers, along with co-workers and families of fallen officers, for the Thirty-fourth Annual National Peace Officers Memorial. The keynote speaker was President Barack Obama. President Obama offered his gratitude for the sacrifices made by law enforcement and their families, and said that law enforcement deaths are a too common reminder of the risks inherent to peace officers jobs. President Obama remarked that our nation should work to heal the rifts that exists between law enforcement and some communities. During the ceremony the name of each Fallen Officer is called, and an officer escorts the family down the center aisle, where they place a flower on the memorial wreath. As you observe the spouses, parents and children of each fallen hero make that emotional journey to the memorial wreath, you can t help but be reminded of the long and difficult road that lies ahead for these families. To me, the ceremony also serves as a reminder of the stress and the risks peace officers face each day. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to peace officers everywhere, for your service. Your courage, commitment and sacrifice are appreciated. RSA members who are interested in participating in the drawing to attend one of the memorials in 2016, should be sure to register on the RSA members only website. An announcement will go out to registered members at the beginning of the year. Page 8 All Points Bulletin Issue 6, 2015

9 LEGAL CORNER Sheriff s Department Settles Drinkwater Case by Michael P. Stone and Muna Busailah Stone Busailah LLP We are pleased to announce that the County has agreed to pay over $350, in attorney fees and costs to RSA and LDT as a result of both fee motions in the California Supreme Court case, Riverside County Sheriff s Department v. Stiglitz (Kristy Drinkwater, Real Party In Interest) No. S This closely-watched case involves the authority and power of hearing officers who preside over disciplinary appeals for California peace officers pursuant to POBRA (Government Code 3300 et. seq), to hear and rule on motions for peace officer personnel records (so-called Pitchess motions ). Government Code 3304(b) grants all peace officers a statutory right to a due process administrative appeal whenever they are subjected to punitive action in their employment. A frequent defense in disciplinary appeals is that of disparate penalty. That is, does the penalty for the sustained misconduct appear reasonable and fair, especially when compared to discipline of others for the same or similar sustained misconduct? In Drinkwater s case, we sought to establish that the discipline was far more severe than suffered by others, by bringing a motion for the redacted records of other Department members that were disciplined (or not disciplined) for the same or similar conduct. After Hearing Officer (and law professor) Jan Stiglitz, found good cause for the motion, the County refused to produce the records and instead challenged the finding by suing Professor Stiglitz to overturn his decision. Superior Court Judge Fisher granted RCSD s petition. Judge Fisher s order was appealed to the Court of Appeal, which ruled that Stiglitz had authority to hear and grant these motions. Undaunted, the County, challenged the Court of Appeal decision pursuing review in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court held that POBRA hearing officers like Stiglitz, are empowered to hear and grant such motions for good cause shown. This decision is of great importance to law enforcement officer throughout California. The Supreme Court victory was followed by motions to recover attorney fees and costs spent by RSA and LDT, which were settled for a County pay-out of over $350, to RSA and LDT. Drinkwater s disciplinary appeal was also favorably settled. She is very grateful for the years of support she received from RSA, the Legal Defense Trust and her lawyers, Michael P. Stone and Muna Busailah. BE IN THE LOOP!

10 MEMORIAL Remembering Run Honors Deputy Bruce Lee The event gave the community the opportunity to tell law enforcement we have your back. Story and Photos By Lauren Hampton Contributing Writer best way to honor someone is to keep telling the stories. The That s what Captain Andrew Shouse, Commander of Riverside County s Thermal station, told the fifty or so people gathered after the memorial run to honor Riverside Deputy Bruce Lee, a 22-year veteran of the Riverside County Sheriff s Department who lost his life in May of The memorial run was held on the anniversary of his passing 12 years ago on May 13. The run began at the Bruce Lee memorial sign on Hwy 111 and Jefferson with officers running and biking from there to the memorial sign just west of Washington and Hwy 111. That stretch of Hwy 111 was named Deputy Bruce Lee Memorial Highway in December of Participants stopped at the second memorial sign to hang a wreath in honor of the beloved deputy. With both signs appropriately adorned with wreaths, the group finished at the La Quinta Civic Center Park s monument rock. An informal wreath ceremony took place there with many guests in attendance, including Deputy Lee s widow. Those attending the ceremony included Bruce Cathcart, La Quinta Rotary Club s President and friend of Deputy Lee. Mr. Cathcart shared memories of the fallen deputy and presented the Sheriff s Department with a We ve Got Your Back plaque, pledging support of all officers in a time when harsh scrutiny of officers is on the rise by the public and in the media. The Rotary Club as a whole wanted to take a step to organize a public campaign to let local law enforcement officers know that they support them, thank them for their service, and that they have their back. The plaque was signed by all of the members of the La Quinta Rotary Club in the hopes that it would serve as a reminder each and every day that they are not alone out in the field. There were many stories shared in an open mic-style time during the ceremony, showing that Deputy Lee was well respected as an officer, member of the community, and friend. Mrs. Lee ended the ceremony by thanking everyone for attending and by sharing a sentiment of appreciation for people s even the simplest of every-day memories of her husband of 9 years.

12 CHAPLAIN S CORNER The 30% Club Harley Broviak Chaplain We have an annual retirement seminar for prospective retirees. The Riverside Sheriffs Association is keenly interested and concerned that the retirees get a focus and perspective on all opportunities available to those who have spent their lives serving our County. As an adjunct to the information available to prospective retirees, I would like to offer another view to all of our personnel. I have had two law enforcement memorial services in the last two weeks for deceased officers, who did not reach retirement age. Their families were not prepared for their untimely departure. It is never too early to make plans for the future. Life is a very fragile thing. The job is filled with dangerous circumstances from the violent exposures due to attack or ambush, to the benign, but deadly, exposure to the gases from a meth lab. In each case, officers must be aware of the effect of those dangers which can severely affect the family if the officer s life or health is jeopardized or ended. Each of us must take advantage of advanced planning for the uncertainties of survival. If life is lost, have we made certain plans and concerns for the survival of loved ones? Have we considered and placed them into effect? It is not just a financial consideration, but emotional support, and longevity of the family which must be examined and prepared for. The shock of one s unpreparedfor-departure is extraordinarily severe. Questions of What do I do now? How can we cope? How will spouse and children survive a brutal severance of the beloved spouse from the family? The whole spectrum of questions flood into the minds of survivors. All doors seem to slam shut and stressor overload crashes down. It is not pleasant to plan for crisis and severance, but it is vital and necessary. Ask the What ifs now and envision how you might handle the worst scenario. It is far better to have an escape plan or an adjustment plan in order to take charge immediately, than to cry and wring your tear- stained hands in desperation! Police work is never easy; no, not for the officer, or for the family! But knowledge of practices possible to help survivors is greatly advantageous, rather than the extreme fright of not knowing, and helplessness of sudden departures. So, will you join my 30% Club? It s very simple. Basically, we plant seeds, starting now! Here it is in condensed form: A. 10% of your income goes into a family needs savings account; (absolutely) B. 10% of your income goes into your head. i.e., continuing education for your current job or...preparing for your retirement away from law enforcement. That means now that you have a little wiggle room, and you ve had a little expertise; and come from a hobby of several years when you find it s something that you really like to do, then do it! C. 10% to God or a charity of choice. You ll be surprised at how fast the years go by until that time you re standing with your Sheriff, Chief, Captain or whoever, as they slowly roast you over a bed or hot and funky sayings, half truths and outright lies about how good you were as a blank. They tell you how they re going to miss you. (But if you stand still for a moment, they ll reload, take better aim and fire again!!! God Bless you all! And Bona Fortuna Club members!!

13 STATE BENEFITS LEGISLATIVE CORNER CORNER RSA Legislative Corner By Tim Yaryan Legislative Counsel and Advocate To date, this has been a watershed year for law enforcement. Over 20 legislative proposals have been introduced this session to deal with the issue of police abuses and accountability. Framed with videos from national television, news stories and op ed pieces, police and sheriffs are enduring the worst media beating since Rodney King. The solutions the legislature seeks to curb police violence range from the wide spread use of police body cams; to reports to the Department of Justice about police shootings; to appointments of special prosecutors to handle Issue 6, 2015 We have institutionally set up a situation of failure. incidents of police violence; to preparing detailed reports about racial profiling just about every police reform you can think of, has been introduced. Some are sincere and honest attempts at reform, and some are cynical political plays to grab the media spot light. However, all these bills have one common failing these are only treating the symptoms, none of them are getting to the root causes of the problem! Many years ago, I was having a discussion with a former Riverside Sheriff and then Senator Robert Presley. Presley was an icon in the law enforcement community, best known for injecting a healthy dose of common sense into legislative debates. In our conversation, Senator Presley said to me, You know, Tim, the answer to running a good law enforcement department is really simple. You have to hire enough good officers to do the job, you have to give them the best training - and keep training them, and you have to pay them well, so that you can retain them! When I reflect on that conversation which was over twenty years ago, I think how good it would be to have someone with the wisdom of Senator Pressley serving in the legislature now. His back to basics approach would be a welcome alternative to some of the frenetic and shrill critics of today s police. To be sure, there is a problem with today s police, but all the legislative Band-Aids offered now will not significantly change this problem. Presley s first rubric of a successful police or sheriffs department was simple: Hire enough good officers! If we look at what departments have done in the past decade, the results are appalling. The Los Angeles Sheriffs Department has never reached its hiring goals set over a decade ago, notwithstanding enormous over capacity increases in jail populations due to realignment. Sheriffs Deputies often patrol dangerous areas in one man cars with a backup light years away. The Los Angeles Police Department finally reached the goal of 10,000 officers two years ago, but now is struggling to hire enough qualified people to replace departing officers. In Oakland, with its notoriously high robbery rates, the police force has lost nearly a quarter of its sworn officers since San Jose now has fewer than 1,000 officers and is projected to lose another 100 officers this year (Thanks, Mayor Chuck Reed, for your pension reforms that helped cause that mass exodus of cops). San Diego has 300 fewer officers than a decade ago. These statistics can be repeated in cities and counties throughout the state. Probation departments are also short of officers. In Los Angeles County alone, over 1,700 jobs are not filled despite a major increase in department workload brought about because of realignment. Is it any wonder, then, that we continue to see on-going policing problems? In many departments, police response times are dangerously slow. Many property crimes are not investigated because of the lack of manpower. Cops have little time to develop relationships in the community. A lack of respect for law enforcement is fostered in many low income communities, because there is hardly enough manpower to even deal with what were formerly called nuisance crimes like drugs or prostitution but now fall into the purview of criminal street gangs and gang control. We have institutionally set up a situation of failure and created an adversarial relationship between officers and the community then, we are surprised when we see explosive situations and confrontations between the police and the community explode like we have in Ferguson and many other cities? All the bills in the legislature and the solutions to police violence and accountability will hardly make a difference. If we don t get back to basics, if you don t re-examine the fundamental institutional problems that law enforcement officers struggle to overcome, we will not solve this problem. Senator Presley was right. Hire enough good officers, give them the best training and keep training them, and pay them well, so you can keep them if we do that if we secure the manpower to effectively and professionally police our diverse and complicated communities, we will bring an end to the root causes of problems facing today s law enforcement departments and bring focus on the fundamental work of preventing crime and violence. Until next time, stay safe! Page 13 All Points Bulletin

17 FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE CORNER Federal Update, June 2015 By Shannon Lahey Legislative Advocate Appropriations for the U.S. Department of Justice The House Committee on Appropriations passed the fiscal year 2016 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriation bill on May 20, This bills funds the Department of Justice. Here are some of the programs funded: State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP): $220,000,000. This is an increase of $35,000,000 over last year. SCAAP provides reimbursement to state and local governments for the costs of incarcerating deportable criminals. Public Safety Officer Benefits (PSOB) death benefit: $88,300,000. This is an increase of $1,000,000 over last year. PSOB provides a one time death benefits to survivors of officers killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty and education benefits to survivors. Bulletproof and Puncture Resistant Protective Vests: $22,500,000. This grant program provides state and local governments with half the cost of purchasing vests. Body Worn Cameras Police Body Worn Cameras: Overview There have been several developments on this issue due to negative press in recent months. We are working to protect the interests of officers. First, the U.S. Department of Justice issued an Request for Applications for a pilot grant program to local law enforcement agencies. Second, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism held an informational hearing. Third, legislation has been introduced in the House and Senate that would authorize a grant program to state and local law enforcement agencies. Fourth, the Appropriation bill that passed the House Committee on Appropriations includes funding for the Department of Justice pilot grant program. Police Body Worn Cameras: Grant Issue 6, 2015 The U.S. Department of Justice announced a $20 million Body-Worn Camera Pilot Partnership Program. Seventeen million would be available for grants to local law enforcement. This program will be administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and is expected to provide 50 awards to law enforcement agencies, with about 1/3 of them directed toward smaller law enforcement agencies. The grants require a 50 percent in kind or cash match and can be used to purchase equipment. The Agency would have to have a plan for implementation a training policy, and fiscal responsibility for storing this information. Police Body Cameras: Senate Informational Hearing The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism held a hearing titled Body Cameras: Can Technology Increase Protection for Law Enforcement Officers and the Public? Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) requested the hearing last month. The hearing focused on privacy concerns, data retention and disclosure issues, and costs. The Chair of the Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grasserly, stated that he does not want to impose huge costs to state and local governments. Senator Scott testified that he is not interested in putting mandates on local law enforcement but to make technologies available. Police Body Worn Cameras: Federal Legislation Introduced H.R. 1680, the Police CAMERA Act was introduced in the House by Representative Brown (D-FL) and S. 877 was introduced in the Senate by Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI). Both bills are pending in the Judiciary Committees and no action has been taken. These bills would establish a pilot match program to assist State and local law enforcement agencies in purchasing body-worn cameras for law enforcement officers. To be eligible, a State or local Agency would have to have policies and procedures in place, including data collection protocols. Body Worn Cameras: Appropriations The House Committee on Appropriations passed its Fiscal Year 2016 Commerce, Justice, and Science bill on May 20, Included in this bill is $15 million to fund the U.S. Department of Justice pilot grant program to provide state and local law enforcement agencies with half the cost of purchasing Body Worn Cameras. Recording Law Enforcement Officers H.Con.Res.41 was introduced by Janice Hahn (D-CA) and referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary. This resolution expresses the sense of Congress that the people of the United States have the Constitutional right to record law enforcement authorities, and they have the full protection of the law to the possession of the recording devices, and full protection of the law regarding data saved on the recording devices.

18 FEATURE Fundraiser First Annual Veterans Court Ruck Challenge Supporting The California Collaborative Justice Courts Foundation By Brian Quigley and Lauren Hampton Contributing Writers What turns a group of individuals into a team? Individuals bring their own experiences, ambitions, and motivations, which can upset unit cohesion and undermine progress toward achieving a goal. The United States Armed Forces discovered long ago that the way to create a team is to forge it in a crucible through physical challenges which can only be accomplished through working together. This creates a sense of pride a sense of fellowship a sense of Esprit De Corps. This was the motivation behind the First Annual Veterans Court Ruck Challenge, the brain child of the Honorable Judge Mark Johnson and brought to life by the diligent efforts of Deputy District Attorney Alberto Recalde, Retired Command Sergeant Major Gregory Coker and their planning committee. The event was initiated in hopes of drawing attention to the Veterans Court whose program facilitates job training, mental health services, housing assistance, and rehabilitation for veterans. The idea was simple; gather supporters of the Riverside County Veterans Court together for a day of competition to raise money and awareness for the California Collaborative Justice Courts Foundation. The Challenge is a 10k race. Teams of four, each member carrying from pounds, took up the challenge on Sunday May 24, at Riverside s Fairmount Park, beginning and ending at the American Legion s Post 79, located inside the park. Word spread throughout the county as agencies assembled teams, raised money to obtain sponsorship and trained with their Rucks to ensure victory. Sponsors included: Riverside Sheriffs Association, Riverside County Deputy District Attorney Association, Riverside Police Officers Association, County Of Riverside Veterans Services and LCA Monitoring Services who donated money, volunteers and organized teams. Nurses from VA Loma Linda Hospital also donated their time in case any runner became injured during the march. Additionally, the American Legion Riverside Post 79 donated the use of their hall and facilities for the event and award ceremony. Teams from Riverside Police Department, Riverside Sheriff s Department, District Attorney, Public Defenders, Superior Court and LCA registered for the event. Probation Juvenile Services Division was a Gold Sponsor and fielded four teams while Adult Services Division and South West Division fielded seven teams under RSA Sponsorship. All told, over $12,000 was raised by sponsors, runners and supporters. As runners started to arrive, their packs were weighed in by Senior Detention Cook Johnny Ortega who not only arranged for the donation of bottled water but also provided the scale which was used to make sure all runners carried the required weight. With their bags certified, runner checked in with the registration desk manned by volunteers including Deputy Probation Officer Mayra Ortega. The Honorable Judge Johnson, clad in his Army BDU s, then addressed the crowd which numbered over 130 runners. He thanked the sponsors for their support, the volunteers for their dedication and challenged the runners to keep up with him and Buddy, his faithful dog and Veterans Court Mascot. Participants were supported by water stations manned by LCA volunteers and First Aid Stations staffed by VA nurses. Every participant who crossed the finish line was awarded a medal inscribed with the words, Mission Accomplished. Among those who finished included three current Veterans Court Participants and one recent graduate. They represented the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps and each held their medal with pride. The winners of the event were: Grand Overall Champion went to Save The Water, from the Riverside Police Officers Association (Edward V., Stanley H., Mike D. and Aurelio M.) #1 Women s Team, Ruck Dynasty from the Riverside Police Officers Association (Dayna B., Janet R., Strawberry C., and Katie M.) #1 Coed team, Superior Court Larson Justice Center s Third Branch of Awesomeness, (Gus Slow Motion Guzman, Zaira Rojas, Franco Espinosa, Mark Peteeie, all of the Larsen Justice Center in Indio) #1 Male Team went to Riverside Sheriffs Association s Team Pelican Banning (Sean M., Eric B., Nathan W., and Marco A.) So what does turn a group of individuals into a team? It comes from working together to create an event such as the Ruck Challenge which has never been attempted in Riverside County. It comes from walking alongside your partners and strangers toward a common goal, despite the crushing weight on your back and pain in your feet. It comes from a sense of pride a sense of fellowship a sense of Esprit De Corps. Photos by Lauren Hampton, Michael Belknapp, and Vanessa Carrasco. Page 18 All Points Bulletin Issue 6, 2015

22 MILITARY CORNER Benefits for Veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen By Robert Simmons Contributing Writer This past Memorial Day weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in an activity I will never forget. I ran across a post on Facebook that an Army Sergeant First Class posted regarding a 40-mile Ruck March that was going to take place Sunday, May 24 th at 10 pm through Monday, May 25 th. The march was to raise awareness for the amount of suicides that occur on a daily basis by military Veterans who suffer from PTSD. The more I looked into it that Sunday morning, the more I knew I wanted to partake in the event, so I got a hold of him and signed up. Since the average number of daily suicides by military Veterans or current members with PTSD is 22 per day, the concept is for each participant to carry 22 pounds for the event in a rucksack or backpack. Most of us also carried either an American flag, or a military branch flag. One of my troops who works for me in the Air Force Reserve, and whose husband was a former Airman who committed suicide two years ago was there. Our march was not the only one to be held that day. They were held all over the United States in conjunction with the organization, Carry the Fallen, under the parent organization, Active Heroes, based out of Kentucky, which is raising money for a retreat for veterans with PTSD and their families. We started our event with 30 military Veterans and family members at a Mc- Donalds in Pomona, near the 10 Freeway and the Pomona Fairgrounds about 10:30 that night and walked/ran the entire night, eventually finishing the 40-mile march at the Riverside National Cemetery (RNC) on Memorial Day morning. The first of us in were four former Marines and I, who finished in 11 hours and 27 minutes. Several others finished as well, but were held up by all the traffic that had been blocked to allow the over 7,000 motorcycles to go through at Troutwein and Van Buren, in Woodcrest. I can still recall the wave of emotion that flooded the five of us as we got to where the motorcycles were turning onto Van Buren. As we joined them heading toward RNC, the crowds lined up along the road and the riders were yelling and pointing at us saying things like, Those are the guys that marched 40 miles last night!, I saw them on the news this morning! and They are marching in memory of the Veterans who have committed suicide. They were giving us high fives and bottles of water and lots of encouragement to finish the last couple miles with our heads held high and flags waving. As we got inside RNC, we knew we had accomplished our task and in spite of the many blisters and sore feet, most of us will probably do it again next time. I also realized I had gained 4 new brothers in the process. If you are interested in participating in a shorter event, there is another one happening on June 27 th, from 9-12 in the morning. They will be starting at the Stater Bros Market, located at Main St, in Hesperia. For more information you can go to Corporal Simmons is currently assigned to Court Services West. He is an Army veteran and currently serves as a Major in the Air Force Reserve. His is if you have any military/veteran related questions or issues you would like researched.
