Agent Bates,
On today, the 91st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe fighting the Germans during WW I. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
