Received Tonight

Services were held today for SFC John Tobiason; many of you stood in the cold wind last night at the wake, today at his funeral and interment, and at his memorial service tonight in Kasson.

And at the same time tonight, others were in Blaine for Bill Juneau's wake. More of you will stand guard at his services tomorrow. This is a thank you note received just a little while ago. It may warm some toes that are probably still cold.

Dear guard,

I attended the wake tonight of a good friend and fellow officer who was killed in Iraq last week, Deputy Bill Juneau. Your people stood guard outside protecting us in the cold while we could pay our last respects to a great person and hero. There are not words to describe my thanks to you, what you do and stand for. I have two kids over seas in the Army now and lost a close friend and part of my instructional staff in Iraq so this hits pretty close to home again. Thank You, God’s safety and Blessings to you all.

David A. Sohm, SPPD (ret.)
