Fallen Officers Remembered


As Memorial day 2016 approaches I was encouraged to read in Grants Pass’ The Daily Courier that a crowd of about 100 gathered at the Josephine County Courthouse to remember those Law Enforcement Officers who paid the ultimate price for the citizens of Josephine County. May we never forget the sacrificed these men and women made on our behalf.
