Inspector Bacon,
On today, the 62nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country -not just as an LEO but also when you served in the U.S. Army during WW I(sorry I didn't double check my previous reflection when I typed WW II). And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
