Officer Brown,
On today, the 54th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Officer Brown, you are one of the reasons the term "hero" exists. Your service to this nation aside (though recognized), you were off duty and outside your jurisdiction and yet you tried to do the right thing. The scum who murdered you got away with it, so far as this posting shows, but we can only hope and pray that he faced true justice in this world, or the next.

Thank you for your service to a great city, and to a great nation. God Bless and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful, Brother.
