While paying respects to fellow brothers at the Vietnam Wall and walking through Wash DC I noticed on the ground a wall rubbing with a name I thought to be another veteran that a family member must have dropped. I wanted to get it back to the family. I noticed on the rubbing it was not a veteran but a fallen police officer Brian K Heller. Upon research, I found her was a member of the Worchester Police Dept. I would like to mail it to his family if they so desire or to the police dept. Pls contact me 908-419-6207 or email [email protected] so I can forward the rubbing to them. Thank you.
