It is amazing to see this and to see that law endorcement has played a part in our family. My youngest brother is retired from the Norfolk PD and was shot in the line of duty in 2007. Thank the Lord the result were not the same as our great-great uncle. It is with great pride that I have learned of Uncle Tom.
