    On March 27, 2015, State Police Sergeant Robert Bemis’s life changed forever. He was on his way home to Dauphin County from a training session in Wilkes-Barre. Bemis saw a vehicle fire on the side of Interstate 81 South near Frackville, so he stopped to help. "We swear through our call of honor that we will be in service of anyone who would be in danger or distress and that's what brought me to the side of the road that day,” he said. While Bemis was on the side of the interstate trying to help, a driver lost control slamming into Bemis's vehicle which in turn hit him. Critically injured, he was flown to a hospital with a broken spine and other bones. Sergeant Bemis has had multiple surgeries and months and months of rehab and physical therapy. He uses leg braces and crutches to get around and he has vision loss in one eye. "You have to get up, and continue to persevere every day just to try to make the next day better." Bemis returned to his job as a supervisor and instructor at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey.
