I saw a memorial decal on the back of an SUV at a high school track meet in McLouth, KS today. Looking up Commander Carnicle, I am not surprised to find that he was a man of great character and devotion to his job and his family. The world needs more individuals such as this. May his family be comforted and may he rest in peace.
