Though in the end Prohibition turned out to be a folly, You showed heroism enforcing a law few wanted and fewer seemed to obey. Ninety Three years ago today, you gave your life doing what was right at the time and for taking that brave stand, you are a hero.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
