I was lucky to have followed Officer Minard on the Omaha Police Department and served for ten years before I left to join another law enforcement agency. It was a honor to carry the same badge he did for those ten years in my hometown. I had not quite came on the Omaha Police when he gave the ultimate sacrifice but I will never forget that day and the horror of watching the local news that evening. My heart still goes out to his wife and his children. There are plenty of people who will never forget him.
