I had the pleasure of dispatching for Uvalde County and met This wonder trooper many times. I especially enjoyed hearing him sing a couple tunes on the air for all who listen to scanners.

I grew up around the corner from Trooper Whiteaker. He has served his State well over the past 1/4 century. Thank you, Wayne, for your service to protecting the citizens of the Great State of Texas. Go Band!
