How successful an organization is and how its members view the organization can best be affected by how the organizations treats or recognizes it past members' sacrifices and achievements. CID Agent Daniel S. Tindle was an early pioneer of law enforcement and investigations within the U.S. Marine Corps and Naval Service, and yes even the United States. The hardships he endured and obstacles he overcame cannot be measured by today's standards. Equally this could be said of present day military investigators and law enforcement personnel. However, one thing that remains unchanged is the basic mission of keeping the peace, preserving order, seeking out the truth, and the high risk involved when any law enforcement professional (Present Day or Old Corps) puts their lives on the line, in pursuit of a worthy objective. Many of the Marine Special Agents (NCIS) today may not readily know who Staff Sergeant Daniel S. Tindle was, but most likely share the same ethos that is known by all who wear a badge, and sometimes go into harm's way.

I am respectfully submitting this reflection as recognition for the sacrifice and acts of bravery U.S. Marine CID Agent Daniel S. Tindle exhibited on the day of his death. Law Enforcement professionals of yester year, who have been overlooked, for their heroic and brave service are equally valued still today as we enter the 21st Century. The essence of promoting "Espirt de Corps" is embedded in how we treat our fallen.

SSgt Daniel S. Tindle you did your duty and the United States Marine Corps and Navy communities are a better place because of you.

Respectfully Submitted,

Matt Lyons
