After serving a year on Operation Enduring Freedom with the National Guard in Africa, the Coral Springs Police Department went out of their way to make sure that Officer Michael Zorrilla was ready for his day back at work. Lining the street, armed with American flags and banners, everyone cheered to show appreciation for their hero.
