Colonel David Brierton and Troop Commander of Troop H,

I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to Trooper Matthew Kirkland. He is an exemplary example of what one expects of a Florida Highway Patrolman.

I was traveling through the Wakulla Forrest on state road 267 about 10 miles south of highway 20 when a tire on my jet ski trailer blew out in a down pouring rain. Trooper Kirkland ensured the safety of myself and wife while I obtained a tire to resume my travel. We were very concerned about leaving our units on side of the road and Trooper Kirkland provided that reassurance.

His polite and calm manner decreased the anxiety in my wife.

He offered assistance in changing the tire or anything else that we would have asked. I didn't need the physical assistance, but I was sure that he would have provided it.

I am a retired USN person and I can appreciate someone that shows true professionalism in the job and Trooper did in every aspect. He is a person that the Highway Patrol can be proud of. He serves FHP and Florida with dignity and pride.
