BOSTON, April 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dic still has a long road to go before we can safely say he has made it out of the woods. We are proud of his actions and extremely grateful for those courageous officers and EMTs on scene who braved gunfire and explosives to render critical care to Dic that has brought us to this point. The Mount Auburn Hospital doctors and nurses have performed extraordinarily well and their staff has been incredible. This week has been difficult for everyone and on behalf of the extended Donohue family, we would like to thank all of the citizens in the surrounding communities for cooperating with police efforts in the search for the suspects. We would also like to thank all of the law enforcement agencies who have worked tirelessly to bring justice to our country. Lastly, we keep in our prayers all those who have been affected by the tragedies this past week, especially Sean Collier, Dic's friend and academy mate.
--- Edward Donohue, brother of Richard "Dic" Donohue Jr.
