It's worth it. Unfortunately even with me being near DC, I'm working so much I won't be able to appreciate the whole week.

I am going down with some of the Officers from Rochester Police and Gates Police. Our COPS Chapter is helping pay for some survivors from our area and I want to be there to gove them support. Some of the Officers from those Departments are also riding in the Unity Tour there for the Officers. I have never been there but have heard it is very moving.

I'll be attending Police Week this year as I am the surviving spouse of Police Officer James Knapp (Cook County Sheriff,Illinois). He died in the line of duty on 04 Jan.06, so his installation on the wall takes place this year. His location on the wall is 50 E 25.

Thanks to all of you who support survivors and honor those who gave it all. You have no idea how much all of your kindnessess count. All of you are a blessing and should be recognized as such. God bless you.

Lt. Grace M. Knapp
Cook County Sheriff
Retired (4/27/07)

I will be there this year. I went last year in honor of my brother. EOW 10/7/05. I will go again this year and every year that i can.It is awesome to be in a place where everyone there knows the pain and sadness and yet there is a comfort in just a smile there. I have made eternal bonds and will treasure every year. We have 3 officers being put on the wall for 06. What heartbreak... and we have had several this year...... This is my calling now....to do what I can for all of the families who God sends. He has been my strength......... God Bless you all.... Shads sis

Good to hear. Look forward to seeing you there. Working security at the event. I know its strange but yes we do have have to police the police. No I am not IA but we have to do it for reasons beyond us (civilians in DC).

It was AWESOME!!! I can't say enough about it. I absolutely agree with those who say that an officer needs to go at least once before they retire. One of the guys I went down with is retiring this year and is glad he went. He plans on returning after he retires. I know I will be back even whyen our chapter has no new survivors going. Unfortunately we have some new officers to be added to the wall next year allready, but I plan on being there. Some of us are all ready working on getting some of the various departments units to go down as well.
