Officer Vernon Seals
City of Truesdale, Missouri Police Department
Police Officer, Vernon Seals, age 35, a 12 year member of The City of Truesdale Police Department, was struck and killed in the line of duty on October 6, 2002 by the out-of-control car of two shooting suspects who were trying to evade officers on Interstate 70 in Warren County.
Officer Seals is sadly missed by his wife, young son, his fellow officers and all of a grateful city.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. –Arthur Ashe
