To the Journal editor:
Today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. Each year, many in law enforcement are killed in the line of duty leaving behind a legacy of service to those whom they protect and serve.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund website reports that 120 law enforcement officers have been killed for the year 2012.
I wish to thank all those in law enforcement across Marquette County who work so hard to keep our communities safe with long hours and low pay.
Should you see a peace officer please say thank you and take a few minutes to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
