I was only 8 years old when my Uncle Jim lost his life trying to save others but because of his legacy. heroism and compassion towards enforcing the laws and helping the needy, I tried to model myself after him during my career as a law enforcement officer in both civilian and military. RIP Uncle Jim, you will never be forgotten.
