This month will be the 64th year of your sacrifice. IT IS STILL NOT FORGOTTEN by your brothers and sisters IN BLUE. I made it to the finish line retiring with 30 years with the Philadelphia Police. I had friends on the job who like you who gave all. There is always a link in the chain that is missing because of sacrifice by you and them . The heroism given will not be forgotten. it is our duty to remember. May God's mercy continue to pour out to you and all our fallen brothers and sisters.
