I don't see any Nevada peace officers who honored your service, so I will just chime in and say thanks for your service and sacrifice to the citizens of Elko County. Elko County is one of the most beautiful counties in the state and we all appreciate your service, albeit a long time ago. Your service and sacrifice is still appreciated by your fellow peace officers far and wide.
