Deputy Constable Scott,
On today, the 98th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a member of the 80th “Blue Ridge” Division in Europe fighting the Germans during World War I.
