It’s nice enough to have in your living room

Testimonial by Steve Vaquera – The Motor Unit presented Tony Garcia with his retirement gift today. We started a tradition taken from the US Military, of giving a custom designed footlocker that can hold all of his keepsakes; as well as his helmet, boots, and uniform. It’s nice enough to have in your living room, and some day his great grandkids can open it to see the very uniform their great Grandad wore. The picture on the front is laser etched onto the wood, it has a brass name plate, and a sliding shelf. I placed badges, patches, and pins from both his service to the PD, as well as his military service onto the inside lid, to dress it up; like a shadow box. He served 32 years, I figured, if you committed that much time to the PD, you should get something really nice. People get plaques, and that’s nice, but eventually they end up in a drawer or in the garage. Congrats, Tony, you earned it!
