"Serving the citizens of our state as a state trooper, I almost lost my life a few years ago, but with everyone's thoughts and prayers, and God in my corner, I was allowed a second chance in life. I am thankful to be able to spend the holidays with my beautiful wife, my outstanding children and loving mother in our new home. I am thankful every day for another day. Happy holidays!"
- Retired S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Robert M. Falls Jr.
