To the children of Major Beavers, your father was a true hero as he took action to protect innocent people from an individual who not only was attempting to commit the crime of robbery, but who could have held anyone of them as a hostage or worse. Your father knew this bad guy could have done any number of other bad things, and because of that he took action against this bad guy. Know that your father loved both his children and his wife very much, and he's now looking after his family while serving God in Heaven.
