I was a CHP Officer from 1969 to 2007 spending my 38 Yr. field career in the Indio, Ca. squad. I knew nothing of your story until the early 1970's. I met your father, I presume Wayne's, and Jerrold,s grandfather in a chance encounter in downtown Indio Ca. His name I think was Don Dale. As I remember he was quite tall, a very nice man, and he owned a local bail bond Co. After meeting Don, and Don telling me of the incident, I looked it up, and it has forever been on my mind, and it will always be as well. Wayne, and Jerrold, Your father, and grandfather were, and would be very proud of you, not to mention myself, the entire CHP Community, and the public. The best of all to the entire family. Danny Saam.
