Patrolman Bugg,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army during WW II as a member of the 10th Mountain Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
