Throughout the on going fight in the war against narcotics Paul S. Seema was able to keep his associates grounded by humor and was able to look past the ugly of the job. It takes an elite type of person to look danger in the face and still put a smile on peoples faces. Him and his partner gave their lives for the betterment of their communities and the world. With that said, the courage and admiration he displayed day in and day out portrays an image of what should be the standard of law enforcement as a whole. He is one of the many reminders of how lucky we are to have the ability to fight the good fight, give it our all everyday and never take any given day for granted.
