Agent Cozza,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but also when served with the USN & USCG-especially during WW I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
