Recently viewed a past television episode of "Justified" that honored the memory of DUSM Derek Hotsinpiller, I will never know the risk level endured or the courage it took to perform the job he did daily. I give my condolences to his loved ones and fellow DUSM, rest in peace and much respect to DUSM #4595.
