Sheriff’s employees were contacted by a former Brock resident and U.S. veteran requesting help in supporting our veterans. He informed our deputies of two veterans, John Ring and Jimmy Matthews, associated with “Buddy Watch Walk – Pier to Pier” program. The pair were traveling on Interstate 20 through Parker County on foot from Georgia to California Monday. He advised the pair was walking across America to raise awareness for veteran issues including PTSD, homelessness, addiction and suicides. Prior to joining the Army, the anonymous former Brock resident’s first job was at Hutches Pie Kitchen in Weatherford. He wanted to purchase pies for the two veterans and asked if our deputies would deliver them during their awareness walk because he lived out-of-state. He requested to remain anonymous because he did not want to divert any recognition from these two veterans and their cause. Sheriff Fowler was eager to help in his kind gesture for the veterans and their cause. Lt. Marc Fletcher and Captain Tony Bilbay volunteered to deliver the pies personally.

“Our veterans deserve our support in any way we can offer it,” said Sheriff Fowler. “
