Years ago, I heard the gunshots ricocheting. They took down one of our youngest and best policemen here in Urbandale, Iowa. Never can I read about an officer who has fallen without reliving that horrible night. I am honored to be founder of Eagle Angels. We give support, whenever we can, to our military and to our Homeland Heroes. At this time, please accept our condolences and our group support. We are here to honor you in any way that we can. Thank you for living on the blue line and standing tall for the weakest to the strongest American.

Eagle Angels is a charity organization that has a team for Homeland Heroes. Not enough words to express our grief when one of our best has fallen.
