Reflections for Police Officer George A. Garland

Officer Garland, it's now been 102 years since a Flu epidemic took your life and now, 102 years later, we are just getting through another Flu epidemic that has taken many lives, including far too many from Law Enforcement. I cannot help but wonder if this will happen again in another 100 years.

Brother, you have not been forgotten. Thank you for your service and God Bless you. May you forever Rest in Peace.

The Influenza pandemic took so many good people during it's run, and law enforcement was not immune. So very tragic for his family.

God Bless you Officer Garland. I'm so pleased that your sacrifice has been recognized here and in time, in D.C.

Rest forever in Peace, Brother.
