I was told by my father Ret. Lt. John Griffin David Sauer before he passed that this was his grandfather. I never gave it a second thought until I saw a posting from July in 2017. I thought it was kind of amazing that someone I never knew existed is related on my Dad's side of the family. I echo the sentiments of Ms. Zaepfel and thank all the officers that dedicate themselves to our safety!
