Sgt Martinez, I did not know you nor can I say I know where the Willacy County Sheriff's Office is located. What I can say is that for the past 4 years I have ridden in the police unity tour for brothers and sisters just like you that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, two years ago at one of our rest stops I was given a metal memoriam bracelet with your name and EOW 11/21/14, as it was given to me I knew immediately what to do with it, it made the whole ride on my wrist and once I was able to walk through the wall I sought out your wall panel and there at panel 55-W: 29 I found your name and there I placed the bracelet. Sgt Martinez are motto on the unity tour is We Ride For Those Who Died, Sgt Martinez on May 13th of 2015, I rode for you sir. You sir will never be forgotten.
