Today I was honored to receive this hand signed letter from President Trump, championing the efforts of our Morton Police Department and police from around our great nation. Our President has been a steadfast supporter of Law Enforcement, made evident by his taking the time to respond here. We are blessed to serve the great cities of Morton and Mossyrock and it is amazing to see that even small communities such as ours here in east Lewis County are not forgotten by our Commander in Chief.

Thank you,
Roger Morningstar
Chief of Police
Morton Police Department

    Wow! That’s so touching and impressive that Chief Morningstar was recognized with such appreciation by our Commander in Chief! Makes me feel more confidence knowing POTUS has such respect for our first responders. America bless God and God bless America!

    Did your dad or grandfather or uncles, cousins ever serve in The United States Arms Forces?
    Do you have any idea the oath they took? For you. I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962). Many have served and died for you to have the right to 1st Amendment.
