And that wasn’t the only touching final call this week. Fox News reports:

“On Tuesday, Cpl. Roy Martin retired from the force after 31 years serving in Arkansas. As is tradition, Martin gave his final ‘10-7’ — code for ‘out of service’ — and ‘10-42’ — code for ‘ending tour of duty’ — on the radio. But, to his surprise, Martin’s son, Arkansas State Police Cpl. Bill Martin, answered his father’s final radio call.”
