Officer Walters,
Please forgive me for not leaving this reflection earlier. Though it’s been 50 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 for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USN during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
