Soldier wounded in line of duty graduates from police academy
A soldier seriously hurt in the line of duty accomplished a major milestone Friday. He was among 80 new officers from across Tennessee who graduated from the police academy.
Officer Jeremy Vanhoose says the 10 weeks of training to become an officer were grueling but he stayed optimistic he would finish the program.
“Don’t ever give up. If you have a dream, nothing is impossible. You can definitely do it,” the new officer told News 2.
Prior to becoming an officer, Vanhoose was in the military and deployed to Afghanistan in 2011.
“Pretty much over there, I was just a K9 handler, searching for explosives,” he said.
One day, while searching for explosives in abandoned compounds and clearing road ways, he stepped on an IED. His injuries were significant.
