United States Marine Sits Behind Two Police Officers At Local Restaurant

United States Marine Corps Lance Corporal Joseph Cadena is no stranger to putting his life on the line for others. As a Marine, he’s trained to do whatever it takes to keep our fellow American safe from harm, both domestic and abroad.

So when Lance Corporal Cadena saw two police officers from Fort Worth, Texas enjoying a quick bite to eat while on-shift, he knew exactly what to do.

Lance Corporal Cadena shared the experience for the world to see on his Facebook page.

“Tonight I ate dinner behind two Fort Worth police officers, but let me tell you why it was important.

Friday night, [which was] four days ago, two of their brothers were shot and hospitalized. Then two months ago, five officers from the next-largest department, a county over (Dallas PD) were assassinated.

Tonight I sat behind these officers on purpose, I positioned myself between them and the door. I sat and ate my dinner, while they laughed and joked and enjoyed their time with each other (I felt the need to include that because some forget that police officers are normal people just like you and me).

I sat there silently after I finished my meal, and continued to watch both exits, while they ate, I did not leave until after they left.”
