Today is the anniversary of James' line of duty death. My family and I are thinking of his service and sacrifice today. We are residents of the city of Boston and we have a fantastic police force here in the city. We as a community need to stand behind our law enforcement officers. James made the ultimate sacrifice and as the famous saying goes it is not just a community that loses an officer. It is a nation. Honor the fallen and never forget. This post is for Detective James Troy. You are in our hearts and prayers tonight.
