Drive To Remember

Drive To Remember is a drive from Vancouver, BC to Washington D.C. that raises awareness about line of duty law enforcement deaths. I first met the individuals responsible for the drive almost a year ago and they eagerly published an article in their paper about the Take Up The Shield Project and we have been in contact ever since. The drive stopped by the Tulsa Police Memorial today and I had the privilege of participating in this event.

Drive To Remember is just one of many events happening this month as we near May 15th, National Peace Officers Memorial Day. The tour left Tulsa after we had dinner and they are in route to Washington D.C. where they will participate in the national events scheduled for next week.

The Drive was inspired by a letter written by Allison Eales, the daughter of slain Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Rocky Eales. We were privileged to have the Eales Family as our guests yesterday.
