SOS Bryer,
On today, the 23rd anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

Danny trained me when I came into the prison system (FCI OTISVILLE) in summer of 1990. He loved smoking a pipe which stuck with me since I had never come across such a young person who did.. He was a true professional, "squared away" would be accurate, yet kind and very approachable. He was my favorite amongst the Senior Officers and I recall the day he passed.. It was a truely sad day. Thanks Danny!

As an instructor, I am deeply saddened by accidents that occur during training. These are accidents that took the life of a loved one, friend, co-worker. But God has a purpose for these fine HERO'S. May they sit upon thrones of gold and serve him, for no harm will come unto them now. RIP BROTHERS/SISTERS.
