James H Sheehy you are the brother to my Great Great Great Grandmother Mary Ann Sheehy who married Cornelius Werner Daily. Until today I never knew of your existence, nor the honor that you brought your family in Ireland and your descendants in the United States. A young wife with six children who greatly missed you, is a lesson that is now shed with my children. You are now part of our family history and I shared your sacrifice and service. Thank you and all officers that give to keep our community safe.
