Program:  Doug Harder read an introduction about Joel White, our Service to Mankind recipient this year.  Joel is Doug’s son-in-law and works for the Douglas Co. Sheriff’s office.  He has given talks to the club several times over the years about his career from being a school resource officer to being on the bomb squad and doing undercover work.  Joel has also received a Purple Heart and was in the U.S. Marine Corp.

His latest event was during the Stem School Shooting where he and several fellow officers were first on the scene and carried wounded kids out of the school and returning to do the same or to confront the shooter.  Unfortunately the Judge on the case has put a gag order out so Joel or the other two officers were not able to give any more details.
