Mr. Winston joked that there were times when he “performed better” than his son, and he admits that this happens very rarely.
On the day of graduation, Mr. Winston posted to Facebook what he and his son had achieved: “For the past five months, every day we wake up at 4:30 a.m., driving together to Fort Worth. We all go to class listening, studying and discussing. “
The proud father also wrote: “We always persisted in jogging, rowing and grappling practice. We have continuously trained to pass tough exams, and sometimes even had to stay up all night.
“Today, we passed the Texas security officer licensing exam and are considered for graduation, and we have embarked on the next leg of the law enforcement industry.”
Mr. Winston added that he will always cherish the beautiful memories he spent with his son.
After graduation, the relationship between Winston’s father and son grew closer and they planned to work in two different departments of the Texas Police Department.
