INEOA: Honoring Leadership, Character, and Courage

The International Narcotic Enforcement Officers Association, Inc. (INEOA) held its 48th Annual International Drug Enforcement Training Conference from
October 8-11, 2007 at the
Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort, Daytona Beach, Florida.

As the keynote speaker for the opening day awards ceremony, I was pleased to affirm the leadership exemplified through the INEOA as well as the character, courage and commitment of each of the award recipients. The awards included the association's medal of valor, commendation awards, special award of honor and international award of honor.

It was an honor to spend a few days in the presence of such noble young men and women who serve at the front lines of the war on drugs. Their bravery is to be commended.
