Officer Green was such a wonderful officer. I remember my childhood years how he looked out for the kids in our rough neighborhood and always encouraged everyone in any situation. What a wonderful spirit. As kids, we use to call him "Major Dad" when he scroll through the neighborhood serving and protecting. So many broken hearts and family due to his tragic death.

I was 19 years old when Officer Green was ambushed and will never forget what a wonderful person he was and mentor in our neighborhood. My prayers go out for his wife, kids, family; and all the others that was affected by the lost of this precious angel.

Much love Officer Green, aka "Major Dad"
