The media nationwide is reporting the tragedy that occurred just two counties away near the historic Gettysburg Battlefield. Googling David Grove WCO will provide up-to-date news of the incident.
I first met David when he was commissioned as a Deputy Wildlife Conservation Officer in neighboring Franklin County back in 2001. During the following years we attended training sessions together. My memories of David are of his fresh young face and his great sense of humor never missing a chance to good naturedly rib his fellow officers.
Our sympathies go out to David's family and to his fellow officers.
