RIP. Thank you for service. I know this not common in a reflection but as the current Chief of Police for the Boley Police Department I am wanting to start a annual award in the name of Marshall, W.R. Shaver. This will be a great way to never forget the sacrifice made. If some knowing the gaming could reach out to the Boley Police Department it would be greatly appreciated.
