Patrolman League's son George Oliver was my uncle, married to my aunt, Thelma Beatrice Murray Jones, for more than 50 years. George, born in 1898, spoke of his father's death and what the loss meant to his family.

All honor to the people who risk their lives and the security of their families' futures in the name of the public good.
