Det. Sgt. Kaltenberger,
On today, the 76th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army on the Mexican Border and in Europe during WW I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
