Special Agent James Ryan, you are a hero. For close to 3 years, I served in the same field office as you although we were separated by many years and generations. In October 2021, you were honored in small intimate ceremony at one of your sister's houses in Florida. For as long as I live and serve my country, I will honor your memory and continue to watch over your sisters. You would be pleased to know they turned to be a very successful women who still keep your memory and your service front and center. I am privileged to know them and have them as friends. You are my hero!
