After many years of thinking about this site for Fallen Officers I am once again offering my deep appreciation for every officer that has given all for the safety and security of this nation, our families and our happiness. This site provides me with that opportunity. This is truly a wonderful effort/site much to be advocated in our thoughts and prayers.
