    Hello Brothers,

    My name is Mac McIntosh. I found this site via a link from Facebook for an article by Bro. Bowden, and hence these forums.

    Until recently, I was a full time peace officer (sheriff's office patrol deputy). However, an on-duty vehicle accident has brought law enforcement to an end. Neck broken in two places, ruptured disks in mid and lower spine - pretty much nipped that career right in the bud! Anyway, at 40 years of age, I'm going back to college to finish out a MA in history to teach on a collegiate level. I am also a writer and will be pursuing that more as well.

    I'll be moving to Houston shortly and will be seeking a new lodge home there.

    Just wanted to introduce myself here before jumping in to conversations. Looking forward being active here.

    Howdy, MacTX. I'm sorry to hear about your accident. My brother-in-law was recently in a bomb-disposal accident. He is a sergeant for the Midland Police department. The public support for him has been astounding. I hope the public response to your accident has been supportive.

    Welcome.

    Brother Mac, sorry to hear about your untimely absence from this wonderful profession. I hate to lose a brother on the streets to things like this. I wish you the best and a speedy recovery, and good luck with all future endeavors. Any idea on what area you'll teach in? I remember back in college the best CJ teachers were ex-police/military/federal guys. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

    I'll come visit sometime. That's a pretty good distance from where I'll be.
