As a Retired LEO, it especially hits home to lose a young Officer and Marine of such good caliber. To his Wife, Son, Family, and fellow Officers and members of the MPD and his Military Family, may you remember Matt for all the good he has done in his short life. Thank you all for your service and sacrifice.

My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Matthew Rittner. Losing a loved one is always difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. I am sorry for your lost.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
