Tonight a complete stranger in the gym saw my tattoo and wanted to shake my hand. I was confused at first but it led to a great conversation. Figured I’d share what this means and its importance to me and thousands of others. ;IGY6 stands for I Got Your Six which is a phrase used by military and law enforcement meaning “I got your back” and the semicolon is a symbol for PTSD awareness and suicide prevention. I got this tattoo because a close friend was dealing with PTSD and I had no idea. In my line of work we see things we cannot unsee and I want others to know they’re not alone and there is always someone to talk to.
It’s #flexfriday I watch trying to reach the realm of the Gods today with the weight I was putting up lol thanks @chamsalamander I hope you all finish off strong. Remember when you aren’t working your competition is. Ps. Curse these long arms.
5 years ago today was the day I graduated the police academy. (I worked 2 years before I went there)
This day 5 years ago was a great day however I always knew I was meant for even more service to my blue line family. I knew I wanted to support them (you) in a big way. •
You see, you never know what is going to happen at any given moment- especially as a police officer. So don’t forget to live every single second to the fullest, say how you feel and tell the people you care about... that you do! •
•Often times walking the thin blue line changes you- it inevitable right? Just don’t forget who you are and why you are on this earth 🌏➖💙➖
