Muster Posts.

Every month, the Ann T. Hathaway blog remembers officers who have died in the line of duty. However, Ann T. did not keep up with her stated mission in September, October, and November.

What I'm going to do, I will post September, October, and November this week and next.  Each one will have pride of place for a day, as I have always done. Then I will change their date to reflect when these men and women should have been remembered by putting the post in its proper archive.

Update: September Muster is now posted under October 1, 2010.
October Muster is now posted under November 1--originally on December 13, 2010.
November Muster was posted December 17, 2010.

The reason this explanation is a separate post:
I am not putting my excuses next to the names of the men and women who served our communities without boundary.  This particular post will also change dates for awhile until Ann T. gets her house in order.

I saw this sign in the city where I live. I think there should be one for every fallen law enforcement officer, all over my city.

Reserve Sergeant Joseph Pozell was struck by a vehicle and killed on May 17, 2005. He was 59 years old.
I learned this by searching the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Ann:
That is a great idea...wherever an office has fallen...put up a SIGN...and remind people about SACRIFICE.
Every city should do this.

Dear Bob,
I think it would be totally fitting. And it could be near a part of the city they enjoyed, or near a memorial. It would be a good start.

Thanks for writing in. The muster for September goes up tomorrow!

Ann T:

Really cool idea--I wonder how we can get this started in our communities?

Dear The Observer,
I think it would be great in the cities, but I also think we might should ask the law enforcement community first.

By posting them, we intend to make a memory and record of service in the everyday world, which was what I was thinking at first.

I would like to see them posted in a way that protects that feeling. For instance, in a tough neighborhood such a sign might not be respected.

So though I greatly would like to do it, I want to think on it and consult a little more first!

I'm glad you like the idea, though. I think it could be made to work!

Thanks for writing in!
