Trooper Ralph Broullire drowned while attempting to rescue two boys in Saginaw Bay.

After Trooper Broullire and two other rescuers made it to the boys, high winds and rough water capsized their boat, killing all five people. Trooper Broullire's body was not recovered until one month later when the weather began to calm.

Your sacrifice and courage is your legacy, and it is two traits that everyone should have, but few actually possess. You are a true testament to what an officer should be, and I am proud to call you brother.
