It was so awesome to visit Trooper Josh & his family at Childrens Hospital on Christmas. Josh is such an inspiration & he loves police officers. We always enjoy visiting when he’s in town. It was fun having a nerf battle before giving Josh his Christmas presents. @PAStatePolice pic.twitter.com/FBkzvVPyae
