Reflections for Patrolman John J. Morrissey

Trying to find out if John J Morrissey is my father's father? Does anyone know if he came from Boston/ Somerville Mass?

I read about your Medal of Valor being found and had to come on here to read how you had passed. I said a prayer for you.
God Bless.

I am proud to have worn the same uniform as a hero who died in struggle helping out a brother officer in desperate need. I hope they find a direct descendant who can appreciate the bond Patrolman Morrissey shares with thousands of present day men and women who wear the uniform. God Bless.

NYC morning show Good Day NY just ran a story about your Medal of Valor turning up somewhere else.

I had to come here to ODMP to see the circumstances.

Prayers for the fallen and their family

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.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Patrolman Morrissey,
On today, the 73rd anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served in the U.S. Navy during WW I.

Patrolman Morrissey, you are a true hero to the people, community and nation that you served. Your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my Brother..... We will carry on.

In 1934 A New York City Patrolman saved my Mothers life when she was an infant. I would not be here today if it wasn't for his quick actions and bravery.
