Reflections for Patrolman Bennie A. Hudson

I was only 13ys old when you died in the line of duty. I couldn,t believe that anyone would really kill a policeman,let alone a couple of blocks from my house. After retiring from law enforcement myself I can only imagine the broken hearts that were left behind. R.I.P. For it was your death that made me want to become a police (so I could get bad guys like the ones that took your life). My watch has been over for a few years now as I retired. Though I never met you,I never forgot you "last call''

Patrolman Hudson,
Sir, even though it has been 52 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and remembered. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the USAF. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
