Santos Valentin: A fallen police officer’s legacy lives on

More than 400 law enforcement officers and fire fighters were killed at the World Trade Center site on Sept. 11. While the memory of each of these lifesavers remains in our hearts and minds, there is one officer whose memory continues to live on within the Coast Guard – badge #21630, Santos Valentin.
