On March 19, 2022, Yaseen was presented with a plaque in recognition of his 37 years of exceptional service to the people of Bowie and Prince George’s County, Maryland. Yaseen didn’t say much, but what he did say was substantive. His patriotism was obvious. Every day at noon, he sat still, listening to the National Anthem. This had been a family custom since he was a child. Because he was a creature of habit, he ate the same thing for lunch every day at the same time: fried potatoes, turkey sausage, and water. This occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m. Tabasco spicy sauce had to be served with every meal.
