America's greatest Heroes are those who put their personal lives on hold as they protect others, either through military service or as a first responder or, in some cases, as both. So many times during our conversations with deployed troops, we have found that many wear more than one hat and often the hats they wear all point in the same direction – that of helping other people in one way or another.
Deputy Sheriff Ian Michael Deutch shall remain a Hero in Nevada and in the USA. So many American hearts are heavy with sorrow for the Deutch family & friends and our prayers are filled with thoughts for their comfort and well being. May God be with you.
For Immediate Release:
