Photos From the 21st Annual Candlelight Vigil

By Kevin Powers

May 10, 2009

Tens of thousands of law enforcement personnel gathered in Washington, D.C., for the reading of the 387 names that were added to the wall at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Officers, survivors and supporters came from all over the country for the event hosted by The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF).

The event’s speaker of honor was Attorney General Eric Holder. Additional speakers included NLEOMF Chairman and Executive Director Craig Floyd and Concerns of Police Survivors President Jennifer Thacker.

    This Celebration always reminds us that we are not alone and that the sacrifice of
    our loved one has not gone unnoticed. This really means a lot. We thank those who
    have been involved in the preparation for this ceremony for their dedication to making
    this ceremony what it is every year and our prayer is that no new names will be added
    this year. It is awesome to see all of the Police representing their units. Thank You!

    THIS WAS MY FIRST TRIP TO HONOR ONE OF MY OWN, (STEVEN BOHEM). IT WAS AWESOME AND MOVING. I BELIEVE ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD GET THE CHANCE TO SEE IT. I HOPE MY NEXT TRIP WILL BE AS MOVING, BUT IT IS SORRY THAT A FELLOW LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER HAS TO PAY THE ULTIMATE SACERFICE.
