Semper Fi Motorman. You will never be forgotten. I lived in the City of Torrance in 1969 when I first started my career on the California Highway Patrol South LA office. I also became a Motor officer and i remember seeing Torrance PD motors in the city. They were always very professional in both their dress and their dedication to duty. Their motors were beautiful and I’m certain that your time with them made their squad the professionals they are. Thank you for your service and GOD bless your family.
