I recently came across a scrapbook of my Grandpa's police activity and there were many clippings about the loss of officer Hogan (my Grandpa was his partner). After some Google searches to learn more, I came across John Gulke's post and felt compelled to not only share in the loss of Officer Hogan but also feel incredibly proud that my Grandpa saved John's mother's life. God bless our officers!
