[Make sure to watch the video below of Chief of Department, James O’Neill, and others share their Memorial Day messages.]
We live in the greatest nation and we are safe thanks in part to the men and women serving in our military. For some, this has meant giving their life while protecting ours.
While you celebrate Memorial Day today, join us in taking a moment to stop and reflect on the sacrifice they have made. Also think of their families who now no longer have their loved ones with them anymore.
The NYPD has numerous members who not only serve our city, but also our nation. Forty-seven of those members made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives serving our great country. This dates back to 1919 and most recently our “Superman”- Detective Joseph Lemm.
These 47 members, their families and all the fallen servicemen and women are in our prayers. Join us in our vow to Never Forget.
