Below the U.S. Flag on this t-shirt reads “If You Save One Life It’s Worth It” which is the motto of the U.S. Law Enforcement Professionals (LEP) who deployed and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The motto simply meant that if, we, as crusty old Aged to Perfection Cops – LEPs, could bring to bear years of experience garnered from duty on the streets of America against the Insurgencies and possibly save the life of one U.S. Warrior then what ever personal sacrifices we made would certainly be well worth it.
These words were our motto, our mission, and our creed.
A creed we lived by and died for while serving side by side Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Combat Firebases, Outposts, and Forward Operating Bases.
At Outside The Wire In Blue, we believe these words represent the years of service and sacrifice LEPs made while deployed overseas for this great country and we bring this motto back home to the American Police Officer to serve as the creed of these brave men and women. For truly, there is great honor in choosing a life of service as an American Law Enforcement Professional, serving our fellow citizens, our communities, and our great country.
