LEU is committed to honoring officers that have died in the line of duty, and ensuring their families are supported and never forgotten.
On June 29, 2011, I lost a childhood friend and co-worker, Deputy Kyle D. Pagerly, who was killed in the line of duty while attempting to serve an arrest warrant on a subject. His death had greatly impacted our community, our department and my life forever.
That is why I ride, to keep his memory alive and for the thousands who also made the ultimate sacrifice.
On May 9th, I will be joining hundreds of law enforcement officers from around the country on an epic ride to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. Our route will take us from Reading, PA into Maryland and ultimately into Washington, DC., where on May 13th a candlelight vigil will be held at the Memorial. On that night, the names of the law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty in 2012 will be read before a crowd of thousands of officers and their families. This is a very emotional night knowing that over a hundred officers are killed every year, and seeing their families seated in the center of the memorial mourning their loss.
Because of the incredible support of my family, friends and community, I am able to participate in this tour each year. Please help me reach my goal amount by making a monetary contribution, so I may ride in this year's Law Enforcement United Tour and not let the heroes who died in the line of duty be forgotten.
Thank you so much for your support!
