Two or three times a year I put flowers on a relative's tombstone in Ackerman, and saw the tombstone for Trooper Wells, and wondered about the story behind he death. When I got home to Columbus I did a search for Trooper Wells on the Internet and found the details about his death. We do not appreciate the sacrifices law enforcement personnel make so many times. The next time I go to Ackermen, I will put flowers on this Troopers monument....
