Badge #11929, God Bless you. Always so hard to reflect on the loss of a fellow CHPY. It’s been 32 years and I apologize for taking so long to honor you. I remember my first month on the job as you never forget those days. Your career was short but still very honorable. It’s not the time on the job but the honor to have been on the job. You accomplished more than many others in such a short time. Your dedication and desire to serve is all that matters. May God bless you and bless your family. I’m so proud of serving on the greatest Law Enforcement agency the world has ever known with you. You served with honor and I for one am proud to call you my brother. Semper Fi CHPY.
