Tony was a great man and mentor. I did a couple of ride alongs with him and I looked up to him. He is a huge reason on why I chose the career path that I did. Every time we would cross paths, he would always provide me with more knowledge that I am able to use on the job as well as in my personal life. He will be missed by many. My prayers go out to his family and to all of those whose lives he has touched.

Tony, SFC "Rad" we called him, was my platoon sergeant in the Army Reserves and issued me my first salute when I was commissioned. My heart weighs heavy tonight as I think about this great person gone far too soon. He left a lasting impression on me and many others with his humor and his leadership. I consider Tony a friend and I send my deepest sympathies to his entire family.

Such a tragic & senseless loss. He gave his life for others. I wish the person who killed him wasn't so cowardly as to commit suicide so he would spend the rest of his miserable life in prison with no chance of parole.
I wish Trooper Radulescu's family my prayers & all the peace in the world. Rest in Peace Trooper Tony Radulescu.
