Deputy Massey: Thanks for your sacrifice to your county, state and to this great nation. Sorry to hear about your memorial being defaced--however wrong and ignorant it is to disrespect brave men/women such as yourself--what cannot be destroyed is your/and our profession's undying dedication, conviction, courage, integrity and willingness to always lay our lives on the line for complete strangers--no matter their background, creed or ethnicity. You honor our profession.
