Officer Graham,
On today, the 41st anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for your service to our Country when you served in the U.S. Navy during WWII.

Officer Graham had lived down the street from me on 43rd Place in Indianapolis.
He was a larger than life cop and I was a juvenile delinquent, though he mentored some of us kids on the block, and even took me for a ride in the back of the paddy wagon. (probably for good measure, I'm sure) It worked.
Thank you and rest in peace.

Officer Graham has not been forgotten by the Indianapolis Police Department. His picture hangs in our Training Academy and our Headquarters. His story is used to train new officers in weapon retention and survival skills. His sacrifice is remembered at roll calls, in our academy classes and in our Daily Information Sheet on the anniversary of his passing. This is our tradition for all fallen officers.
