Today marks 76 years and sadly the first time I've seen this memorial page. Ms. Amrhein, I salute you in your efforts to have your Father memorialized here and in D.C. Your efforts are a credit to your tenacity and you honor all in Law Enforcement by your actions.

I have no doubts what-so-ever that your Dad was a magnificent man and a good cop and I too and thankful you were successful.

May he forever Rest in Peace, and God Bless our Brother, his children and all those who came after him.
