K9 Jedi, last year I watched the body camera of the day you gave your life for your human. I was sad but very proud as you held that suspect and made it so the injuries to your partner where not life threatening. Today May 2nd as I performed Honor Guard at the Officer Down memorial your Human gave your eulogy to the assemble crowd. It is clear you touched him, your human family and the rest of your depart. You are loved and missed, rest in peace and thank you for your sacrifice.
