Trooper Velez your service of 27 years is amazing. You have put in a life time of service and so has your family. Now its time for you to sit back and rest peacefully and let your brothers and sisters take it from here. Keep a watchful set of eyes on all of us down below and some day we will all meet again. Until then may your loved ones heal and stay strong.
