Augustus McCann was my grandfather, a man I never had the opportunity to meet. This is so touching to read all of these wonderful reflections. Although I was not an LEO, my son retired after 30 years with the Orange County Sheriff's Office and my grandson was with Orlando Police Department before moving to the Secret Service. I guess some of us followed in my grandfather's footsteps. Thank you to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day for us.
