My Dad, Dale Fletcher (badge 879) was the officer with Officer Reed when this tragic event took place. Dad told me many times that Officer Reed saved his life by wresting the gun away from the assailant and throwing it to Dad before he collapsed.

Thank you for your great sacrifice for our country. I'm a Christian writer and you'd be so proud of your daughter, Janet Thompson. She's a great author and she's making a difference with her life too.

Daddy, I only found this page today and it breaks my heart all over again, but I am so proud of you! It is a blessing to see those who have remembered you too.

You are my hero and I've missed you so all these years. I wish you could have met your granddaughter and your sweet great-grandchildren, but we will keep your memory alive for them.

I love you so much and have chiseled on my heart this tragic day and your birthday. Until we see each other again...you're always with me.

Rest In Peace

You were my grandfathers partner and friend. He always spoke of the good times you shared and how the both of you had too much fun while working together. My grandfather, Hal Moberly ID# 823, passed on this last September and I know the both of you are sharing stories of the good ol' days.
