Thank you for your dedication to protect and serve. Though we never met, you bear my father's name and some how I'm certain were united by blood as our family immigrated through Maine to the Hudson Valley, New York. You continue to be an inspiration for those of us who humbly follow in your foot steps. God's Peace.
