Jeff Chudwin Front Line Reports from Hurricane Ground Zero

Buy art to support officer victims of Katrina

A message from Chief Jeff Chudwin:

During our deployment, many of you have written to ask what can be done to assist the Louisiana State Troopers who lost so much. Many have no homes and have lost all.

While working with the Troops, my team had the privilege to be led by Trooper First Class Stacey Pearson. We talked about things and the next day I saw her again at the Post / Troop B.

She told me that she is an artist and completed a limited edition run of prints title "True Blue". Trooper Pearson asked if I could get the word out that the money derived from the sale will go 100 percent to the Troopers in need.

I will order mine and ask that you resend this request to all you know who feel that such support is deserving.

We spent 17 days total assisting and we were exhausted. We lost nothing and have homes and family to return to.

They work nearly non-stop and many have lost all.

I understand that we get so many requests for aid; but this is truly one that needs immediate attention.

If the cost of $100 is too much, ask your FOP Lodge to make the purchase. It will be displayed proudly.

Thank you and God Bless.
