Missouri Highway Patrol officer credits military with helping to reach goals

Missouri Highway Patrol officer credits military with helping to reach goals

December 20th, 2010 by Jeremy P. Amick in News

Lt. Roger Whittler, assistant human resources director with the Missouri Highway Patrol, spent 10 years in the Army Reserve.

Growing up in a large family, Roger Whittler understood the daily battle of making ends meet and could have easily used such dour circumstances as an excuse not to pursue his goals.

However, the guidance of his parents, a supportive neighbor and the skills gained through military service would supply this Highway Patrol officer with the hope, skills and drive necessary to realize his dreams.

Born and raised in the New Bloomfield area, Whittler learned at a young age what it meant to do without.
