Two East Texas Troopers Recognized

More positive recognition for local authorities. In Tyler, two East Texas Troopers were presented with financial gifts thanking them for their service to the community. Checks were presented to Trooper Steven Stone and Trooper Wade Kimble.  Both were recently injured and have been off work for months. The organizers of Trooper's Benefit gave away more than $9,000.

"It is quite an honor. We come in contact with people everyday and most the time they are not too happy when they see us.  Therefore, for these people show their support it is quite an honor," says Trooper Stone.

"It means the world to us at such a time in need like this that they would come forward and do this for us, for me and my family," says Trooper Kimble.

The non-profit organization Trooper's Benefit, will be having another fundraiser in April.
