One of my partners I had before I retired came to see me this weekend. And, as usual, he always wants to fill me in on the little scuttle bugs abounding in the department. I went to ask him if so and so...and Officer_________ were doing well. But, you know I have found out, since I've retired and I'm not there every day seeing people, I have a tendency to forget people's names. I can see their faces, but many names skip my mind. Of course, there will always be the very good friends or the idiot supervisor you never forget, but for the average run of the mill Officer I worked with.....well.....that's different. I'm only 53 and have no signs of Alzheimers and I'm wondering if forgetting people is a natural phenomenon for most people when you get isolated from them. I wonder if that happens to vets when they ETS, retire or change duty stations?
