Korean War veteran Stanley Gold has seen a lot in his life.

He’s 88-years-old and even as Stanley is going blind, he still wants to see more before he loses his vision completely. So he asked the Pembroke Pines Police S.W.A.T. Team to try out their night-vision goggles.

It was definitely an eye-opening experience for Stanley, and the Florida cops want to know if they’ve found a new recruit.

In a post on Facebook, the department explained how their meeting came about.

“Several weeks ago, Police Support Specialist Josie London received an unusual phone call from Stanley Gold, an 88 year-old resident of Century Village. Stanley stated that he is 75% blind and has always been curious about night vision equipment used by the military and SWAT teams; he wondered if it was possible to see and/or use the equipment before he lost his sight completely. Josie forwarded that information to Sergeant Kevin Venema to see if that would be something we could help Stanley check off of his bucket list.”

“On July 11, 2018, Sergeant Kevin Venema (SWAT Sniper), Sergeant Christian Rogers (SWAT Team Member), Officer Ken Murphy (SWAT Sniper), and Officer Brian Frobel met with Stanley at his apartment. It was learned that Stanley is a Navy Veteran of the Korean War, and was recognized in 2010 in the Florida House of Representatives for decades of work he did for the American Legion. He also spent 36-years towards helping pass legislation to improve working conditions for United States Postal Workers.”

In the end, Stanley thanked the officers with something sweet – some tasty Klondike bars for their kind efforts.

What would you doooOOOooo?
