ATLANTA, Georgia (September 17, 2019)--Point 27, an Atlanta-based global nonprofit, has sent Thin Blue Line scripture-inscribed dog tags called Shields of Strength as gifts to the fallen Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Moises Sanchez who died August 24 from gunshot wounds sustained in the line of duty in April in Hidalgo County.
.
Point 27 also sent scripture-inscribed Folded Flag Pendant Necklaces as gifts to encourage family members of the fallen trooper.

US Army (Ret.) Col. David Dodd serves as director of Point 27, which honors fallen law enforcement officers and fallen soldiers.

Dodd commanded a battalion of the first troops deployed to Afghanistan following 911. He wore a Shield of Strength inscribed with Joshua 1:9 next to his government-issued dog tags, and equipped each of the soldiers in his command with a Shield of Strength before they deployed.

Dodd says he hopes the scripture on the Shields of Strength encourages troopers, who served alongside Sanchez, and the family of the fallen trooper, who are making and have made tremendous sacrifice for their communities.

“We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that Trooper Sanchez made and we will not forget his family. We are forever grateful for these brave men and women in law enforcement,” Dodd said. "We are presenting Thin Blue Line Dog Tags to thank the officers who served alongside Sanchez for their putting their lives on the line to protect Americans. The dog tag is engraved with a Bible verse and serves as a physical reminder that God is with them day and night as they patrol and protect the streets of their community. We want them to know we appreciate and value them.”

The face of the Thin Blue Line Shields of Strength shows an engraved silver American flag face designed with one flag stripe of blue. The back of the dog tag is inscribed with Matthew 5:9, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."

The Folded Flag Pendant necklaces are engraved with John 15:13; “Greater love has no one than this; to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

Dodd served 27 years in the military. During his active military service, he distributed more than 10,000 Shields of Strength to members of the military, national and international leaders.

After his military retirement, he founded Point 27 to share the scripture-inscribed dog tags, that encouraged him and his troops, with members of the military and veterans. Since -- the outreach has expanded to include the Thin Blue Line Shields of Strength for law enforcement officers. Point 27’s mission is to equip every law enforcement officer in the country with Thin Blue Shields of Strength. To date, Point 27 has awarded more than 70,000 of the dog tags to law enforcement officers, that number more than a million nationally.

Point 27 has distributed more than 300,000 Shields of Strength, including high volume gifts in partnership with the national organizations: Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), Tragedy Assistance Program for [military] Survivors (TAPS), Patriot Guard Riders and the Gary Sinise Foundation.

The national Officer Down Memorial Page shows 12 Texas law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty to date in 2019, and 11 killed in the line of duty in 2018. Point 27 has honored each of these fallen, their families and agencies with gifts of Shields of Strength. In 2016, Point 27 honored the five police killed in the summer of 2016 downtown Dallas shooting, sending the scripture inscribed necklaces to the Dallas Police Department for officers and family members of the fallen. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/2016/07/29/dallas-officers-honored-with-shields-of-strength/
