SGT John MacLellan of the Watertown, MA PD retired after 30 of honorable and valorous service.
SGT Mac tracked down and engaged in a lengthy gun battle with one of the Boston Marathon bombers. The encounter left one bomber DRT and his brother on the run. His actions that night earned him the police Medal of Valor. Awarded to SGT Mac by the Vice-President during police week, 2015.
At his retirement ceremony hundreds of citizens turned out to see this fine man and cop hang up his gun belt.
The Chief praised his actions the night one of the bombers was taken out but said that SGT Mac will be remembered for his big heart. “He’s the guy out there championing for the less fortunate in our town, that’s what I’m most proud of.”
Mac wants to get more involved in his church where he’s the president of the St. Vincent Society.
Best to you SGT Mac…and thanks for dispatching that evil bomber to the gates of hell. Carry on sir!
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
