Today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day.
This day is set aside to commemorate the more than 19,000 law enforcement officers who have died in the performance of their duties in the United States. The very first recorded death in the line of duty was that of U.S. Marshal Robert Forsyth who was shot to death on January 11th, 1794 while attempting to serve civil papers on a subject in Georgia.
Please take a moment today, to pause and remember these brave men and women who served their fellow man only too well.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"
