Trooper Andrews,
Even though it’s been over 75 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and remembered. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USN during WW II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
