Trooper Brown,
On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO-but for our Country as well when you served as a U.S. Army Military Policeman in Vietnam. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
