Even though your end of watch was 76 years ago today, you are still not forgotten. As someone aspiring to become a LEO, I admire your sacrifice in the service of your people. I hope that some day I have the same courage as you to stand in the face of death while on the job. Thank you for your service. RIP Officer Hinshaw.
