Lt. Det. Ohman,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice-first for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army and later for the citizens of Weymouth when you served with the WPD. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
