It was 1993 and I’m on a quick recess from a jury trial Bristol Boro PD. I’m awaiting word of being hired in Bensalem I get a call from Major Hughes. “ Andy Major Hughes. What badge number do you want” his raspy voice wants an answer. I’m scared to death by this guy. I’m like “What do you want it to be” We finally agree on the number. Before he hangs up his says in a pleasant voice “Andy we are honored to hire you”. I think I was still shaken. Ha. Loved this guy from that phone call on. RIP sir.
