Reflections for Marine Patrolman Walter Britt Sawyer

Marine Patrolman,
On today, the 57th 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 U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

This man is my great grandfather on my mother's dad's side.
I never met him, but I've heard amazing stories about this man.

He was my Grandfather, I was 6 months old when he was killed. I am proud of him. He is my Hero. I only wish to of known him as an older child. He had 4 children, and 2 grandchildren when he was taken. Love, and Rest with God.
