Patrolman Eckhart,
Sir, even though it has been 61 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and remembered. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the U.S. Army during WW II. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
