As I seat here today, May 15, 2012 putting together the final words on my Memorial Day speech honoring you. I reflect back on my 30 year career and sometimes wonder if you, by given the supreme sacrifice of your life for us haven’t made us a better profession. I realized in this complex business of public safety sometimes the most horrendous incident brings change; I thank you for watching over the rest of the officers throughout the years and keeping us from adding another officer’s name to “our” memorial wall.
