I would like to personally thank Trooper Steve Peek, Troop L - Fort Pierce for his courtesy and professionalism displayed on Friday, May 5, 2006.
I was driving on I-95 on Friday afternoon when I had a flat tire. I pulled over to the side of the road and started to unload my van to get the spare and change the tire. As I was doing so, trooper Peek pulled behind me and came to my assistance. He asked if he could be of assistance then proceeded to get a jack from his vehicle and changed the tire for me. This assistance in itself was much appreciated and totally unexpected. When I offered to assist, Trooper Meek asked that I stand behind the vehicle for my safety and insisted that he was more concerned with my safety as with the effort to change the tire.
I believe that Trooper Meek is a great example of Florida's finest and deserves recognition for his efforts over and above his duty and my expectations. He certainly has my vote.
Thanks again Trooper Meek
