Officer White, it's now been over 78 years since your life was taken so needlessly. Drunk driving has been an issue since the dawn of the wheel and so many lives continue to be taken in this way, as you were. Tragic. Your family should have been, and should still be proud of you for your service. I believe they are.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
