  “When I joined the North Dakota Highway Patrol, I knew every day would be an exciting and challenging way to help people.  The most rewarding was being selected and trained as a department pilot in the Aviation Unit.  Whether I am patrolling the highways, investigating a crime, or responding to an incident in the department aircraft, I know every day will be a new and rewarding experience.”
