KFSM: Sen. Boozman Recognizes Mulberry Officer For Going ‘Beyond The Call Of Duty’

Written by Press Release

August 22, 2019

MULBERRY (KFSM) — When a truck carrying several military families’ personal belongings caught fire, one local officer went “beyond the call of duty” to help those in need.

On Thursday (Aug. 22) Mulberry police officer Thell Riddle was recognized by U.S. Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.) while the two shared a meal at the Dairy Dip.

Boozman said Riddle “stepped forward and went above and beyond the call of duty” to help the families, who lost nearly everything in the fire.

“As a result … several members who served in our military and move all the time … were able to salvage some very, very important things that were dear to them,” added Boozman, who personally thanked Riddle for helping the families recover some of their possessions.
