JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The love and support is still pouring in for Deputy Brad Sullivan, who was critically wounded in the line of duty in September of 2019.
Friday morning, the Praying for Deputy Brad Sullivan shared a letter of support from President Donald Trump to Sullivan, saying he and Melania “pray God grant you comfort and strength as you continue to heal."
Sullivan was released from the hospital on December 20, just in time to spend Christmas with his family.
“I am so happy for him to have survived," Pepper Miller said the day he was released. "It was a miracle. We prayed for him. Our whole church prayed for him. He’s a wonderful man and I’m just so thankful that God allowed him to live--spare his life--for his family and his children.”
