Today 4/27/12 we participated in "Project Hero". Project Hero is a new program. we as active and retired Officers go out to the grave sites of our fallen brothers and sisters (our Heroes) and fly an American flag and a Thin Blue line flag next to their graves for the entire month of May. We also take time to salute these Heroes in their final place of rest. Thank you Deputy Constable John Edward Dickson for giving the ultimate sacrafice
