An old devil dog took it upon himself to safeguard the Marines in his care. In the wake of the shootings at the recruiting station in Chattanooga, Roy Drinkard, a WWII veteran, made the decision to install bulletproof class to protect the Marine recruiters in his building.

Drinkard is the president and CEO of Drinkard Development Inc. and spent $33,000 installing level four bulletproof glass, built to withstand the impact of 7.62mm rounds.

“I had a tough time finding someone,” Drinkard told Marine Corps Times. “But now there’s a new door, new glass, the whole thing.”

The installation of 3-inch thick polycarbonate glass, which can withstand the impact 7.62 millimeter rounds, was completed on Thursday.

The Marine Corps recruiting office is located in Cullman, Alabama – about 50 miles north of Birmingham.
