Officer Sheehan was my uncle. He was killed 24 years before I was born. Although I never met him, his sister - my mother - made sure that my brother Paul and I knew who my uncle was and why his service was so important.

I am a retired teacher. I can assure you that every student I ever taught learned about my uncle and the extraordinary heroism he and his fallen brothers and sisters displayed.
