I never knew you, Sarge, since you were gone long before I was ever on the job. But we probably passed each other on the street a thousand times. I must have seen your star in the case at HQ, but I just now heard your story. I'm glad it was told.

Well Gramps, it took almost 7 years of digging to get your story told and your death recognized, but we did it. Thank God we were able to have your name added to this web page and the Illinois memorial before anything happened to your daughters. Rest in Peace; your sacrifice has been acknowledged at long last.

Lt. Bill Kushner
Chicago PD
