I accidently came across this doing a search of my last name. I am a police officer in AL.. so is my father. Coincidently.. my father's name is Robert Gordon. I wish I could know or find out if we are of any relation. Either way.. you made the ultimate sacrifice and will never be forgotten. Two more Gordon's are carrying on the fight for peace and justice for you. Rest in peace
