I wish I had noticed the officer’s name who helped me today. He was kind, thoughtful and had a wonderful attitude and a great sense of humor. I so wish I had picked up his name because I would write a commendation letter to his superiors. He transported a group of us from Mansfield to Arlington today. If anyone knows who I am speaking of, please post a reply and let me know. There were also a couple of female officers who were kind and considerate. I can say nothing bad about this facility because they were by far the quickest I’d experienced as far as processing me in and out, and the food was edible. Much cleaner than the place I’d been before.
