To the Editor:
Each year, the month of May is set aside to honor law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. This past year alone, 166 brave men and women died while protecting and serving the citizens of our great country.
Please take a moment to reflect on the sacrifice these officers made, especially Sheriff John Stack and Chief Deputy Andrew Herlitz, who died in the line of duty in October 1965, protecting the citizens of Morrison County. Although most of the law enforcement officers in our county weren’t even born then, each one remembers the sacrifice made by them and all their brothers and sisters in uniform who then, like now, form the “Thin Blue Line” separating the sheep from the wolves. — Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel, Little Falls
