I sworn in on 22 Sept 1969, and after graduating the academy was assign to the Adam Sector (Broad Ripple Area under Lt. "Twiggy" Anderson) to be trained on the street by Warren E. Greene. We quickly became friends and spent lots of off time together. Warren was a great mentor, his passion was training rookie cops. He told me stories about his 10 years on the NYPD before IPD. Warren told me many things that to this day I still remember like "always remember to temper the law with a little mercy" and "when you place a person under arrest you have taken all they have except their life".

I miss Warren to this day, he is my friend. After 10 years with IPD, 15 years with the federal govt, I still continuing to carry a badge, I can still see his face, hear his voice, and smell those terrible cigars he loved so much.

I will always miss you, rest in peace my friend. One day we will see each other again.
