Capt. Rowe,
Sir, even though it's been 45 years since your End of Watch, you are still honored and remembered. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served during WW II and the Korean War. And to your fMily and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
