Investigator Smith,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a LEO but also when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe fighting the Germans during WW II as a member of the 36th "Texas" Infantry Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
