With the posting of memorial service pictures in this edition of your magazine, I only have a few brief remarks. We honored ten Line-of-Duty-Death (LODD) names and their families in the Saturday night candlelight and Sunday morning services on October 9th and 10th. There were also 64-names honored of those who served and passed for other causes. Special guests Saturday night also included Missouri Lt. Governor, Mike Kehoe, and his wife. Sunday morning included the Deputy Director Missouri Department of Public Safety, Kevin Bond. Keynote Speaker was survivor Dwayne Murphy, Assistant Fire Chief, Montgomery, IN Fire Department. The May services for 2022 will be Saturday, May 14th, and Sunday, May 15th.
