A K-9 officer had such a profound effect on a young boy, that at the age of ten, he wanted to become an officer and catch all the bad guys and keep people safe.
Luke Clubb is a resident of Junction City, Wis, Luke Clubb, he met Officer Christian, in November on his 10th birthday when he needed help with a medical condition.
Officer Christian is with the Marshfield Police Department, he assisted the Clubb family that day and became a hero for Luke. “He was asking me a lot of questions,” stated Stephanie Clubb, Luke’s mom. “He wanted to know what he was doing, if he was a K-9 Officer, he was watching his every move.”
Afterwards, the Clubbs sent the officer a thank you card and mentioned how much Luke was interested in becoming a K-9 officer.
After two months, Luke got a surprise box in the mail from the Marshfield Police Department from Officer Christian.
The box had a letter addressed to Luke, a stuffed animal of one of the department’s K-9 Dogs, a Marshfield Police Badge, and pictures of the Marshfield Police K-9 officers with their four-legged partners. “For him to take the time out of his life to do this – is amazing,” added Mike Clubb, Luke’s dad. “This affected our son and our family.”
Luke began reading the letter, but was so overwhelmed by the act of kindness, that he was moved to tears before the end, his mom had to read the letter to Luke where he left off and she too was in tears. “Bravery is going to the doctor on your birthday,” read Luke’s mom. “Bravery is fighting Pompe Disease with every ounce of your body — obviously you have the qualities to do the job and we are always looking for more brave men. Signed Officer Cory Christian with his badge number. “
The Clubbs are planning to frame the letter from Officer Christian along with the badge and hang it in Luke’s room to remind him to fight for his dreams. Luke counts it as his best birthday gift yet and says he will always remember it.
