Operation Santa Coverage
- It has been seven months since gunfire took the life of Chicago police Officer Thomas Wortham IV outside his parents' home in the Chatham neighborhood.
Yet a visit to the home Sunday by retired and current police officers — dressed as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and their elves, or on hand to help out — was a reminder that his sacrifice will never be forgotten.
When the officers arrived with coffee mugs and a poinsettia, Wortham's mother, Carolyn, appeared surprised at the turnout of her son's brothers and sisters in blue.
A great big Thank You to everyone who volunteered, contributed or supported the Police Memorial Foundation efforts this year. The families of The Fallen deserve to know that their loved ones' sacrifice is not forgotten.
