The 2013 40th Annual Peace Memorial in Phoenix was held on May 6th. It was a solemn occasion where Peace Officers from around the state came to pay their respects for their fallen comrades.This day was made more solemn occasion because on this day a fellow DPS officer was killed while sitting in his vehicle on I-8 outside Yuma on an accident investigation.
There were Blue Knights from AZ I, II, VI, IX, and CA 1 in attendance. From AZ IX was Ray & Donna Valenzuela, Mike Martin from CA 1, and Ron Friend.
I have posted photos and videos from the event under the “Photos” tab. The videos are the Pipes and Drums.
