Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

I attended the Ohio State Highway Patrol's memorial service for the first time this past May and was moved by the dedication the Patrol has for remembering it's fallen officers. I was also greatly moved by the number of family members who come back year after year to honor their loved ones...some who have died over 50 years ago.

My boyfriend is a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. I have always been proud of his job and his affiliation with the Patrol, but am even more so after attending the service. People always use the "words" "you will never be forgotten. The family of OSHP live by those words.

My Grandfather was one of the founding members of the Ohio State Patrol, along with Colonel White. He operated the earliest training camps for the Patrol. Having been a pilot in WWI, he was also an early advocate of aerial observation for the Patrol. After a power struggle over the direction and use of the Patrol, he was demoted to Patrolman. He died there within a short time, when my father was twelve. He was extremely proud of the Patrol.
