Give Thanks for the Thin Blue Line

Today, we pay tribute to the sacrifice of all law enforcement officers and their families for the sacrifice and risks that they assume daily in defense of our lives and property. Too often, they pay the ultimate price, and a family is torn apart and a community mourns, and reflects.

I will not be blogging further today out of respect for the funeral services honoring the life and death of Fairfax County, VA detective Vicky Armel, a wife, a mother, and veteran police officer in the county adjoining mine. Det. Armel will be honored today by thousands of officers and citizens around this area, and around the country who will remember. Please join me, and pray for her family. Thank you.

Updated 5/17/06, Master Police Officer Michael Garbarino of the Fairfax County Police Department today, May 17, from multiple gunshot wounds he received on May 8, 2006 during an ambush behind the Sully District Station in Chantilly, Virginia.
