Deputy Sheriff Moore,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF during the Cold War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
