My husband at the time just returned from Vietnam. We had just purchased a new sports car. Officer Austin pulled us as husband was going over speed limit. Hearing my husband has just returned from Vietnam, Officer Austin gave him a warning and Thank him for his service. Shortly after that was when Officer Austin was shot. I have never forgotten what a kind man he was...Thank you for your service. RIP
