"Tonight, we are gathered to remember 282 such individuals, men and women who serve their communities and our nation and who gave to the cause of our safety and security the last full measure of their devotion. Their names are now forever etched among the 24,067 heroes who make up the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. We remember them all and we honor them all. They represent the very best of America. These officers and agents investigated heinous crimes and pursued the perpetrators. They safeguarded our lives, our property and our values. They help people get through a moment of crisis. They kept guns and drugs off our streets. They protected our schools and houses of worship. They brought comfort and calm to their neighbors and pride to their families and friends. All this and so much more. Their service will not be forgotten even long after this candlelight vigil ends because their contributions to our country endure."
