Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Your Son, Rex White was one of my mentors when I went to U of H-D Police Academy. I was in class III and was the class sergeant. Mr. White showed great leadership and was an excellent instructor. Thanks to the whole family of Officers and former Officers. God bless you all and keep your close.
