Auxiliary Officer Solomon, as a former Auxiliary myself, I know that the work often flies under the radar and the public is unaware of the countless volunteer hours put in by you. Your sacrifice is now honored here and your service is honored by all who know of it and those who continue to wear the "AUXILIARY" banner on their uniform.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
