My name is Mickey Nguyen, early retired law enforcement officer and military veteran of 2 branches of the US military.
First we, the whole world, has had to deal with the coronavirus and then back home in the US, the protest/rioting still continuing after several weeks now. As a vet and a blue family member, watching from half way around the world has been difficult. Seeing how my brothers and sisters are being disrespected, injured and/or killed has broken my heart. And as if that hasn't been enough, now with credible threats against our families and homes, it has taken things to another level. Watching as things continue to unravel, I discussed things with my wife and our daughters here. I've volunteered to fly back to the US and go where I am needed to provide security for active law enforcement officers' families and homes while they are at work. I am also recruiting more retired/former law enforcement officers and veterans to volunteer their time as well, to provide security for those that protect us. I started at Facebook group, Retired Sheepdogs 4 Sheepdogs https://www.facebook.com/groups/477249703074001/
So this brings me to the why I'm crowdfunding. Things while only having started are quickly evolving. We are hoping this will continue on being a long term thing to develop into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to provide security measures for our active LEO's families and homes while they're on duty.
What's the money going to be used for? It will be used for equipment such as radios, ip security cameras, food stuffs, and other supplies.
Every donation, no matter how small helps, but the biggest help is sharing this and my 2 Facebook groups, Retired Sheepdogs 4 Sheepdogs and Corgis4Cops.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, donating and sharing!!!
