Today, we remember our fallen heroes; those men and women who are no longer with us yet served this nation in one of the armed services. Take the time to remember all who have given up their lives in defense of this nation. God bless.
This is the first Memorial Day where someone so close to me is remembered. My father served in the US Army as an MP at Fort Wainwright, AK. After military service, he served as a Bannock County Sheriff’s Deputy before moving his family to Emmett where he served on the Emmett Police Department. In 2012, he retired from the Emmett Police Department as a Lieutenant. You embodied the creed of "To Protect and Serve."
If you say their names, they're never forgotten.
