JULY 2011


The following Men and Women laid down their lives so that we could live in a free and prosperous nation. For God and Country they paid the ultimate sacrifice. In one fleeting moment the lives of their families were changed forever. Their loss will always be felt by those who loved them, by all who worked alongside them, and by every man and woman that has ever worn the green and gold of the United States Border Patrol. It is with the utmost respect that we honor them here.”-From The United States Border Patrol Museum Website
