April Muster

Every month, this blog honors law enforcement officers who have died serving the communities of our nation. The muster is a tradition I learned at Texas A & M University. Once a year, the school turns off most of its lights. Students, alumni, faculty and family attend a huge convocation. Someone calls the name of each departed Aggie from the roll. Another Aggie always answers for their presence: here with us.

--Jacob Rayos--Ian Deutch--Kory Dahlvig--
--Rodney Holder--Bryan Durman--Franco Aguilar--

Dear Ones,
I never like to reply too much in these posts. That puts me back in, and this is not about me, but about them.

Thank you for using this post, however out of the mainstream it may be, to honor the fallen and the sacrifices they have made.

Ann T:
I agree with the purpose of your post, to keep the focus on the sacrifice of the officers.

I'm afraid May's will be longer. In just these three days, we have lost officers in suburban St. Paul, MN and Detroit, MI.

Thank you LEO every where for the risks you take and sacrifices you make to keep us safe.
