Reflections for Special Officer Henry Clyde Hatcher

Officer Hatcher,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but also when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe fighting the Germans during WW I as a member of the 3rd “Marne” Division.

Special Officer Hatcher, I thank you for your service to this nation. First as a soldier in the Great War and then protecting one of America's greatest assets, it's railroads. How terribly sad to have made it through a war only to die questioning trespassers. I hope and pray the ones responsible for your murder paid their full debt to society. It may not have brought you back, but at least, maybe some justice was done in your name.

God Bless you, Brother and I hope you are resting in peace.
