Those of you who know me in private correspondence know I am terrified of public speaking. I will do it at a fallen officers ceremony. I left a copy of the speech with the flag for the family. I was caught off guard when a family member asked years ago. I was not aware that the family might ask and the previous time the speech was written in pen by hand. Had I been aware the family would want the speech I would have provided a clean type written version.
RIP my brother officer.
