Officer Mason,
On today, the 81st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a member of the 35th “Santa Fe”Division in Europe fighting the Germans during World War I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
