I visited the Officer's Memorial in DC last week. I took a pencil rubbing from the East Wall and now have it displayed at the Benton Juvenile Office. I never met Officer Galemore having been hired a few years after his End of Watch (I was hired a few years after Mike Ellis). We all hope his family is doing well. And we hope that we in this office are living up to the standard he set.
