Officer Cassidy,
On today, the 100th 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 U.S. Army in Europe as a member of the 26th “Yankee” Division fighting the Germans during World War I.
