I worked with Det. Lema at Naval Station Newport for the 3 years I was station there. I would go into his office and just talk with him and on occasion he would give me word of advice. I would take those words to the heart for the respect I had for him.
I was shocked when I heard not only about his death but how it happened.
I am at training at FLETC right now and at the beginning of ORT (Officer Response Training) we have what is called a End of Watch where a student would talk about a Police Officer they knew or just heard of that died. I did mine in respect for Det. Lema.

My deepest prayers go to the family, friends, and police officers who knew Frank.
