I heard from other Navajo Police Officers that you were a outstanding Police Officer, it really sadden me when I heard of you. I lost a older brother in the line of duty, the late Navajo Nation Police Officer Samuel A.Redhouse on February 1997. The Navajo Warriors in heaven were also sadden, you are there with my brother in Yodi Beehoghan , Navajo name for home for those who have past away. Me and my brothers at times talk about how Navajo Nation has changed so much and the people. It seems to me how a lot of Navajo people have no respect for Police Officers anymore and NN Officers have to cover at least 100 miles of calls everyday. May the Chiefs and Warriors be with you- younger brother of late Officer Samuel Redhouse.
