Title: The FBI’s Knoxville Field Office and its Citizens Academy Alumni Association paid a visit to Children’s Hospital.

Joseph Carrico, special agent in charge, FBI Knoxville: Good morning. I just wanted to say hello. I’m Joe Carrico. I’m an agent at the FBI here in Knoxville and just wanted to come out with some of our folks to introduce you a little bit to the FBI.

Make a fist.

We’re gonna get you cleaned in a second.

John Raleigh, special agent, FBI Knoxville: Part of the reason I came down was, one, I love kids, and two, I’ve been down some of the same roads with fighting cancer. And I know, as an adult, just how difficult that is on the individual and on the family members. And I felt like, if given the opportunity to take a kid's mind off of their fight for just a minute, I wanted to be involved.

Title: FBI Citizens Academies and the alumni support and promote law enforcement agencies through community engagement, education, and outreach.

Bill Evans, vice president, FBI Knoxville Citizens Academy Alumni Association: To me, kids, to walk in and know that so many are in-patients here, and they’re not going to be able to be in their homes for Christmas, and yet seeing the smiles on their faces, the thank-yous, the excitement of seeing the toys. I handed a toy to a 12-year-old and she lit up. It’s like I flipped a switch. And just to see that, it just really warms your heart.

Take care Superman. Be good, okay?

Bye.

Bye buddy. You take care, buddy.

See ya. Be good.
