May 15th, 2016 — Recently Clifton Jansky, REALTOR® at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® and notable musician, was honored to be a part of the Texas Law Enforcement Memorial Service. The service was held at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center in historic Fredericksburg, Texas. The Heritage Center is situated on a 12 acre campus with a covered 350 seat LoneStar Open Air Pavilion complete with Amphitheater, Campfire Circle and a full catering kitchen. Their mission is the story of heritage, history and culture of the Texas Rangers.
They honored 13 fallen Texas Law Enforcement Officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty. Clifton expressed his gratitude by saying, “I am thankful for all the men and women who put on a uniform everyday whether military or law enforcement. They protect our freedoms and keep us safe.”
May 15th was designated as Peace Officers Memorial Day by President John F. Kennedy in 1962. The week in which that date falls is recognized as Police Week. Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the U.S. participate in a number of planned events such as the one held at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center.
In this memorial release honoring these 13 fallen officers a quote reads,
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13
