Claude was my great-grandfather. The policing profession lives on. Through my uncle (Florida Fish and Game, retired 27 years), my father in-law (LAPD 25 years), and myself (LCSO and HPD). Thanks to all those who have served and continue to serve and those who have given all; to their families, friends, and brother's in blue.
