You have a truely remarkable police force when they remember fallen officers Like George Hindman who died so many years ago. For me it is truely moving. George Hindman was my great great uncle. My grandmother was Marie Hindman. I visited Lincoln as a child of about six. George Hindman still has many family members or decendants living in Texas. My name is Olin Boese and may God watch over all of your officers.
