Patrolman Scott,
On today, the 45th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF-especially during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
