They Paid the Ulitmate Price

Linda and I walked past the Peace Officers Memorial on the Capitol grounds recently.  Two names on this panel leaped out at me.  Billy Paul Speed was killed on the campus at The University of Texas on Aug 1, 1966, trying to deal with the Tower sniper.  (He was about two blocks away from me when he died.) J.D. Tippitt was killed on Nov 22, 1963 in the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination.
