Detective Dinwiddie,

I lived in Killeen for about 10 years and spent some time as a Fort Hood MP. I saw you many times in passing. I am thinking about you and your family as the 2nd anniversary of your tragic death has come around. I know what it was like on the first anniversary of my father's death.
