Brother, you gave your life while trying to safeguard others at an accident. So many have been taken since doing the same thing. The job changed quite a bit in the time you spent doing it and I have no doubt, you adapted well. Your descendants are no doubt proud of you.

Sgt. Shanahan, you are a fallen HERO. God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace.
