Officer Casto,

Another year has come and gone. It's "Police Week" again. I was there when they read your name at the local memorial. We have not forgotten you sir. I think about you every time I go to the PD, and I see your memorial. Continue to rest in peace sir.

Officer Casto,
I come by and post yearly during the week set aside to remember the dedication of Police Officers. I walk by the memorial outside the headquarters that you never lived to see when I report for duty. You are not forgotten sir, nor will you ever be.

You died a hero. You were doing your duty. You did not die in vain. Your actions that night has taught many officers here how to react when off duty. It has taught them to stay on duty 24 - 7 and when in plain clothes and helping, know how to react. You have and still are saving lives. We salute you.

Officer Castro,
Although we never met, I remember you today. I live in what became Huber Heights. You knew it as Wayne Township. I learned about you at the Police Department during our Citizens Police Academy course. You are not, nor will you ever be forgotten.

As my career's end is coming closer, I decided to check and find those who had lost their lives during the year that I was hired. While it's been many years since your passing, I'm sure those you left behind and those whom with you served with distinction have kept you alive in their memories. Thank you for your service and for looking out for us who continue in our chosen profession. Rest in peace Officer Casto.
