When discussing all aspects of criminal cases, missing persons and the aftermath of crime, often getting a bad rap are the members of law enforcement. Whether an investigator that can’t or won’t go the extra mile, or ones who display corruption, we want to believe that the majority of those who choose law enforcement as a career do so because they want to do what they are sworn to do: Protect and Serve.
Ward Hamilton doesn’t consider himself a hero, most heroes just happen to be in the right place at the right time, however, it’s at this juncture that a decision is quickly made, how to react to the situation at hand.
When he heard that Massachusetts Trooper John Vasquez was wounded by a gunman, Hamilton made the decision to run towards the situation instead of away from it, offering assistance that saved the trooper’s life. As a former police officer, Hamilton and his instincts kicked in to save the trooper and create a positive outcome of a possibly deadly circumstance.
Although this act of heroism is a large part of Ward Hamilton’s life story,there’s much more.
Life has an interesting way of putting things in perspective.
On the show listeners will learn more of what’s in the makeup of Ward Hamilton, his heroism, as well as his experiences in Security and Law Enforcement, and on the personal side, the care taking of his mother when she was diagnosed with cancer.
