I’d like to extend special thanks to Office Vaughn for waiting with my daughter and my car on the Veterans Highway in Tampa near exit 4. The car overheated and she called AAA and I had to get another car for her to take her and her two friends who were going to 3 different graduation celebrations at FSU on Friday. He waited with them with the lights on which made it easy for the tow truck to find them and me as well. It was probably less than 30 minutes from when she called in distress and when I was able to bring her another car to drive and ride back with the tow truck.

It wasn’t necessary for him to do it but it certainly was an above and beyond moment. Plus, my daughter has never had a fondness for police (for no reason – she’s never been in any trouble, thank God!) and this showed her that those who take oaths to serve and protect really do it, often with just plain kindness and courtesy.

Thank you, Officer Vaughn and the State Troopers! You are a blessing.

Bernadette T. Seprish
