Sandulli Grace and MassCOP Honored by United States Army
On Friday April 3, 2015, at the Massachusetts Coalition of Police’s annual President’s Dinner, United States Army Sergeant Major Craig R. Chapman honored Sandulli Grace and MassCOP for the services they provided to him while he was stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 2014 during Operation Enduring Freedom.
Sergeant Major Chapman is MassCOP’s Area 2 Vice President and a police officer in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. While stationed in Cuba, Sergeant Major Chapman needed the services of his union attorney to help him respond to a problem that had arisen in the North Attleboro Police Department before he went on his leave. Fortunately we were able to bring about a resolution to the problem and afford him some measure of peace while he was stationed so far from home. Sergeant Major Chapman returned home safely in December 2014, and resumed his job as a North Attleboro Police Officer and MassCOP Area Vice President.
At the President’s Dinner, I was deeply honored to accept from Sergeant Major Chapman a presentation flag of the United States, and a certificate stating,
Camp VII, Task Force Platinum
Operation Enduring Freedom
The Flag of the United States of America
The Law Office of Sandulli and Grace
“This flag was proudly flown over Camp VII in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on 11 September 2014. This flag is presented to you in the spirit of patriotism as a tribute to those who lost their lives during terrorist attacks on the United States of American and on behalf of all Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen serving under Task Force Platinum who continue to fight in the Global War on Terrorism.”
During his presentation of the flag, Sergeant Major Chapman urged all MassCOP members to work with the 23 members of the MassCOP Executive Board to make MassCOP even stronger, through open communication and collaborative problem solving.
The certificate and flag presented by Sergeant Major Chapman will be proudly displayed at our offices. On behalf of all of us at Sandulli Grace, I thank Sergeant Major Chapman for his service to our country, and to the members of the Massachusetts Coalition of Police.
