Patrolman Argentinis and I led parllel lives. We were of similar age, joined the Wareham Police Dept. at roughly the same time, and both had very young children of the same age. It could have easily have been me or another patrolman that suffered his unfortunate fate. He made the ultimate sacrifice for which I have no word to express that could ever serve to comfort his family. He was badge #12 and I was badge #13. There is no adequate way to thank a hero.
