Sir, as a fellow Border Patrol Agent I just want to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country and Puerto Rico-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but also when you served with the U.S. Army as well. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

A fellow BPA
