As I prepare to ride into the wall on the final day of the Police Unity
I reflect on the reason I started this journey. "We Ride For Those Who Died" we ride to ensure the officers are never forgotten. On this mothers day I am riding for Britney Meux and her family, although we have never met, I am here to make sure you are not forgotten. May your family take solace that you are not forgotten. Team Gloucester County and the Police Unity Tour thanks you for your service.
