Reflections for Lieutenant Adam Gustafson

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
one’s character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Lieutenant Gustafson, what many people never seem to grasp is that, not just the job, but the training for the job can be dangerous and tragically, many Officers have been injured or killed while training. Thank you for your service. So long as those who know and love you best keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never be truly gone from them.

God Bless you, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.
