On my first day at the Department the Academy Sergeant told me that I was going to 2nd Platoon for training until the Academy started. He told me that if I was lucky I’d get to have you as my FTO. He also told me to keep my mouth shut, listen to what you had to say, and pay attention to what you did and how you did it and I might actually learn something. I took his advice and have to admit that what I learned during my time with you helped me realize that I had picked the right career. I mean it must have, because 37 years later I’m still here and I still love what I do. It was truly an honor to have known and served with you.
