DETECTIVE SERGEANT BOB BAESCHLIN'S 97TH BIRTHDAY
From Mike Picked up Bob NELSON and visited Bob BAESCHLIN for his 97th birthday. He is unbelievable eating hot wings & ribs and a couple of beers with us at SMOKEYBONES in Palm Beach.
Excuse the finger he loves every one who served or is serving on the Department. He said anyone he didn't like died years ago anyway. He said the Marines taught him this sign of love over 80 years ago.
Bob's Birthday fell on Veterans Day which was appropriate. He is part of the "Greatest Generation" serving as a Marine in WWll. He was shot in the stomach and leg in the battle of Guadalcanal & almost died but he's still going strong as our oldest living retiree. Detective Sergeant Bob BAESCHLIN a great guy, another we can be proud of on Veterans Day.
May GOD bless him and all of us who serve in Law Enforcement & and our Military.
Thanks Mike Flaherty

Good news Russ Caudill was transferred to Spa Creek Rehab Center last night. It is located at 35 Milkshake Lane, Annapolis, MD room 113 A. His phone number is 410 260-6781 calls and visitors welcome.
On Saturday, March 9, 2019 , Russ Caudill, #824, retired, suffered a medical emergency and was transported to Calvert Memorial. He was later transported to George Washington Hospital in Washington D.C. and admitted to ICU. Please keep Mary and the family in your prayers.
Our friend and brother Chuck Scarlata ID 408 is now at the Chesapeake Hospice House on Solomons Island Rd in Harwood. A decision will be made Monday or Tuesday whether he will remain there or return to home hospice care.
Chuck's battle against chest tumors and 7 brain tumors has weakened his body's ability to fight. He is not in pain, sleeps more frequently and has difficulty with his diction. But Chuck is still Chuck and still smiles and laughs and is able to understand everything and respond. When I visited Chuck and Anna today his face lit up but not as much as it did yesterday when Chief Stawinski stopped by for a visit.
Folks who know Chuck know he is a real-deal Christian...an all-in follower of Jesus Christ. His rock-solid faith before and during this battle cannot be missed, nor should it. He feels God's presence and peace in the midst of the worst storm anyone could go through. I know he would appreciate your prayers...and if he could be on FB he would be requesting prayer for his wife Anna and their family and not himself. I know Chuck would enjoy some visitors.
I will continue to provide updates.... Doug ID 610
From Brother Darryl Jones:
HI guys, Feel free to share with the retirees. Initially I was diagnosed with severe congestive heart failure, but the doctors did not know what caused it. After a couple of weeks I was sent from ICU to rehab. Two days later I was flown to ICCU at AA hospital where a pacemaker was implanted. They also determined that the cause is a rare disease called sarcoidsis. Many more exams and rehab to come.

Update 3-13-19 I wanted to let you know the donation check arrived today. I want to thank everyone again for the great brotherhood that I have the honor of belonging to. My family and I are very appreciative of everyone's generosity. I have been given my upcoming bone marrow transplant schedule. They have me scheduled for the BMT to be done on 04/05/19. So as of tomorrow I will be spending most of my days completing advance examinations and tests for the BMT until 03/30/19. I will have to start the advance chemo treatments on 03/30/19. After 04/05/19 the 90 days of daily visits to Johns Hopkins will begin. I received my blood work labs back from yesterday and all of my levels are very positive results and the doctors are very pleased with them.
Once again I want to extend a thank you to everyone who has made this journey easier. Please also let Milt Crump and Mikey Ferriter know that I said a personal thank you for their generosity.
Regards, Ed Steele
Update 3-4-19. I personally want to thank everyone for their continued support, well wishes, prayers and visits. I retired from PGPD on March 1st 2009 and never truly understood how great of an organization and brotherhood I am a part of. Through my career there were moments when we had to come together for tragedies and loss, I was one of the supporters then. Now that I am a recipient I have a much deeper perspective on what this brotherhood means and I am truly blessed to be a part of it. For me and my family the continued support we have received from the PGPD and retirees has made our journey so much easier. On this past March 2nd they held a benefit for me and my family, and in true "brotherhood" fashion the PGPD and retirees came out in force. I cant put into words how much it meant to me and my family to have this support. My daughters remarked afterwards about how they were amazed of the support from the police family that came out for the benefit. I explained to them that I am truly blessed to have been a part of a great organization and brotherhood known as the PGPD. I was released from Johns Hopkins on March 3rd and I am currently at home completing an outpatient chemotherapy plan until we can get to the bone marrow transplant phase. We anticipate that the transplant will take place around the first part of April. At that point we will be living in Baltimore for around 3 months since I will need to be at Johns Hopkins seven days a week under examination everyday. I will keep on fighting, praying and working hard and I will come out the other side of this. I appreciate everything that has been done for me and my family and the continued support from everyone. As this journey progresses I would ask that everyone please keep praying for me and my family, and once again Thank you to everyone.
