Weekly Honor Posts

Today’s (October 11) #Honor post goes to Zechariah Cartledge with Running 4 Heroes Inc. as he continues his mission of honoring our fallen heroes.

Last night in steady rain he ran to honor fallen heroes. It was not ideal conditions to run in but the weather is God’s way of telling us something.

This morning he quoted Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

Being 10 days out from Zechariah’s birthday here is our verse for him: “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12.

Keep the faith Zechariah, stay the course and never grow weary of doing good as God directs you as you grow.

Today’s (October 12) #Honor post goes to the Myrtle Beach Police Department for their “rocket speed” service to all.

On September 12, 2020 a family from North Carolina was visiting Myrtle Beach. Driving their replica of the Pizza Planet truck from the movie Toy Story they stopped at the Coastal Grand Mall. As they entered the mall they noticed a person stealing the rocket from the top of the truck and driving off with it. The family thought that would be the last time they saw the rocket and filed a police report.

As they were gearing up to leave town on September 13th the family got a call from MBPD that they had located the rocket. The Williams family picked up the rocket and are very appreciative of the outstanding work done by the MBPD.

We continue to keep the department and the family of Officer Jacob Hancher in our prayers.

Jeff Benton-Gator 107.9 thank you for spreading the good on all these great officers.

Today’s (October 13) #Honor post goes to the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety for “stopping and stooping” for all the right reasons.

On Monday October 12, 2020 while on patrol an officer noticed a young child who needed some attention. He pulled over and the girl said she needed a bandaid to cover her knee injury. Without hesitation the officer applied the bandaid and made the young child feel better immediately.

“No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child”. -Abraham Lincoln

Nice work Sunnyvale for stopping, stooping and saving the day for a special young girl.

Today’s (October 14) #Honor post goes to the New York State Police for hiking with heart.

On a recent call Trooper Rhodes and Trooper Amendolare were sent to search for 2 hikers who had become lost during a hike in the Huckleberry Loop trails. After driving around and searching and going door to door looking for the 2 disoriented hikers the troopers decided the best way to locate them would be to hike the same trail.

After several hours of hiking steep and rough terrain the troopers located both hikers just after midnight. The hikers were unharmed and returned to their vehicle.

It is the dedication from these troopers that bring honor to themselves, the NY State Police and the profession. Nice work to both troopers and way to hike with heart.

Today’s (October 15) #Honor post goes to Officer Travis Hoguet with the Caseyville Police Department for making them smile early.

On October 9, 2020 Officer Hoguet responded to an infant choking. He arrived and began to deliver infant back blows eventually dislodging the obstruction. The baby has made a full recovery and is still smiling thanks to Officer Hoguet.

Nice work Officer Hoguet for the quick response and commitment to the profession evidenced by the application of the training you have received.

Today’s (October 16) #Honor post goes to Zechariah Cartledge with Running 4 Heroes Inc. as he marks 3 years honoring our fallen heroes.

Yesterday October 15th marked 3 years ago that Zechariah set out to honor all first responders. He turns 12 years old on Wednesday (10/21) and we are honored to sponsor this young leader. We believe that Zechariah is using his talents and passion that God gave him. He is the truest example of loyalty, love and leadership and he is on a mission, a mission to honor.

Keep your faith in all you do Zechariah and know that the entire team of cops and first responders at Honor and Respect are proud of you buddy.

Today’s (October 17) #Honor post goes to the Dallas Police Department officers that made the split second decision to honor their calling and not just take a call.

On October 13, 2020 officers responded to South Dallas where a car had entered the water. When officers arrived they were told there were people still inside the submerged car. Without hesitation the officers entered the water and began to remove both from the car.

DPD Officer Foster says “This is not a job that you take to get any kind of appreciation or pat on the back. It’s usually the opposite. We do this job because it’s something that needs to be done.”

The call was dangerous, the decisions made in a split second and the result was a life saved because it’s a calling and not just a call.

Everything is big in Texas including courage and these DPD officers proved that.
