Odessa has been well represented at the prestigious FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Sixteen members from the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang traveled there to prepare food for the FBI Academy on “Texas Night.”
Michael Veretto, one of the members with the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang who traveled to Virginia, said, “It was an unbelievable honor for the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang to serve brisket and ribs with all the fixins’ to law enforcement personnel from all over the USA and a few other countries including Odessa, Ukraine. It was without a doubt one of the most incredible feeds, the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang has ever done.” .
Texas DPS Major Jeremy Sherrod, who used to work in the Odessa/Midland area, invited the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang out there. The Odessa Police Department is also proud to have a Captain from our Command Staff attending the prestigious FBI National Academy. He’s one of about a handful of officers from the Odessa Police Department who’ve attended the academy in recent times. We’ll tell you more about that tomorrow.
