On August 18th, 2021, the Editorial Board of TroopertoTrooper.com voted unanimously to endorse and actively support retired Staff Lieutenant Kevin Miller's campaign for Ohio House District 72. Kevin was appointed earlier this year and is campaigning to retain this seat in the coming 2022 election. Click on Kevin's uniform photo to link to KevinMillerforOhio.com.
With the passing of Springfield Post Commander Brian Aller, the Division has now experienced 3 COVID related deaths in 2021 within the active uniform ranks: Trooper Bradley K. Huffman, EOW - January 20, 2021; Trooper Andy Ward, EOW - August 30, 2021; Lieutenant Brian Aller, EOW - September 29, 2021. Without minimizing these tragic losses for the OSHP and the families of these dedicated officers, we would implore that those in the active ranks and our retirees give some serious thought to the health care decisions they are making regarding the COVID health care crisis continuing to impact all of us in our State and in our Country.
