A friendly face so far from home

Trooper Smith and Governor BushYou just never know when and where the boss is going to show up and pay you a visit! Land-O-Lakes District Trooper C. J. Smith was happy to see a familiar and friendly face recently while currently serving in Afghanistan. Florida’s Governor Jeb Bush paid a special visit to our men and women who are serving overseas. Trooper Smith and her colleagues in the United States Army were visited by Governor Bush, who shared with them his continued support and well wishes from all of us here in the Sunshine State.

The men and women of the Florida Highway Patrol continue to provide prayers and support to our troopers serving their country proudly, and all of the men and women of the United States armed forces who are fighting the war on terror. We wish you all a safe and quick return home.
