Private Milo Baucom

I am your Great Great Nephew, as you are my Grandmothers Uncle. I have been a Police Officer in the Air Force for 21 years and now a Civilian Police Officer for James City County Police going on 13 years.

I will be riding this year in the Law Enforcement United Road to Hope, in your Memory.

I am honored to ride in your name as you have served and honored the profession with your heroism. I pray you ride along beside me as we complete the 252 mile ride bicycle ride to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and to honor their family members left behind.

Your watch may have ended, but your blood will continue to serve through me. I pray God blesses over all of us Sheep Dogs through the history of time.
