A very tough job then and now performed by very tough people. Thank you for your service. Though some feel the Border Patrol's job is a losing one and pointless, most of us with common sense know just how important your job is and I thank you for doing it. On this 54th anniversary of your death I would like to make clear that to all of us out here, you are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
