Reflections for Sergeant John Sturdy

Sgt. Sturdy, today marks the 153rd anniversary of your brutal murder. Though the fate of the animals who beat you to death is not cited here, we can only hope they faced true justice for their crimes, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
