...thank you for representing the 13th District of Texas with pride."
"Over the past year, your charitable donations have impacted our officers and staff tremendously by boosting our morale and keeping us well fed...And of course, the smile on all our faces when you come donate all the breakfast tacos, it makes coming in to work that much more worth it...we would be proud to say that we embrace you as family as well! We also want to thank you for the morning prayer and blessing you bestow onto our officers before they start their day."
"Thank you so much for remembering my husband. Honoring him for his legacy is really a big honor for our family. May the good Lord protect and guide you always. We love you! Not forgetting my husband and my family means a lot to us.
This is Officer Jorge E. Alvarado, surviving brother of fallen Salinas Police Officer Jorge David Alvarado Jr. I received your postcard and wanted to thank you for keeping my brother, my Salinas PD family and The Alvarado family in your thoughts and prayers. It is great knowing that not only my family but also others who knew of my brother still remember him on the up and coming one year memorial anniversary of his tragic death. From the bottom of my heart thank you for your postcard. God Bless...
Please feel free to share our communication with the great and kind hearted volunteers at “Bridge to the Badge” as your card means the world, because it meant just that for me, to the survivors of our fallen Heroes. Extend my sincerest appreciation for keeping him alive through your memory of him. Thank you all for reminding me and reinforcing the Oath that we Officers swear to uphold, especially in these times where it seems that our law enforcement officers are under attack throughout our great nation. Any sacrifice is worth it when we have people like yourselves. Thank You.
"There are really no words to express our heartfelt thanks for the sympathy, love and support you have extended toward our family in this time of sadness. It is deeply appreciated and will always be remembered by the family of Michael Queeney. Your prayers are so appreciated."
"Thank you to Bridge to the Badge for remembering Chuck! This is incredible!"

"I received your card today. Chief Ramos with DeKalb County Police Department in Georgia handed it to me at a meeting about honoring the life of Sgt. Daniel Mobley in Washington D.C. for police week in May. A difficult day for us, when I got home, read your note and found my favorite Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11. God speaking to my heart as we make arrangements to attend police week with Danny's special needs son Eric in May. Thank you so much for your ministry and God's perfect timing for me to receive the note today."
"We received a card from Bridge to the Badge, in regards to my father's passing. We are very grateful to you guys for lifting us in prayers, and we'd very much like to join this beautiful gesture you are all doing."
"Thank you very much for the sweet card you sent my way! I am so grateful and blessed by every prayer sent to the Lord on my behalf for the memory of Allen. Our Heavenly Father is my constant companion, through His Spirit and He surely comforts me on the days that are tougher than others. My greatest comfort is knowing Allen is not "lost," but has simply moved away for awhile and I will see him again soon enough. God bless you!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the card. I am detective Joseph Tripoli's x-wife. We have a 16 year old son together. It brought a smile to his face to know that people far and wide are showing their support. This was a hard loss and our hearts hurt over this loss. Again thank you.
I received a card in the mail from your organization. My husband, Captain Reginald Smith, died in the line of duty on 1/7/22. He gave his heart, life, time and love to being a police officer. He let me know that it was a ministry for him. In so many ways was he able to spread the gospel and give hope to those who were lost in this world.
Recently I was told by someone who had changed their life that Reggie saved their own life and the lives of so many others. He believed in anyone and thought that the power of God and prayer, which he loved to do, could save a dying world. It’s hard to understand the ways of God sometimes but he knows whats best for me. We have 3 beautiful girls and a baby boy and my husband adored them so much.
My heart was filled with joy to open the card sent from a friend in Texas, signed by Tommie D. It feels so good to know that mu husband’s life and years of service has not gone forgotten and neither has his family. God has a way that is mighty sweet and he has shown it through you all and the work of this organization. Continue to be blessed in the goodness of the Lord and may he keep blessing the work of your hands. All my love, from my heart Adrienne Smith and children Riley, 4 Gianna, 3 Nylah, 2 and Rylan, 1
