The Mason County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard is seeking donations in order to be able to send two of their members to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony in WashingtonDC, June 2014.
This prestigious event brings together Honor Guard members from across the United States to participate in a national competition as well as to provide honor to those that paid the ultimate sacrifice while enforcing the laws of this land.
This event will also be adding the names of over 140 Officers, Deputies, Troopers and Agents that were killed in the line of duty in 2013.  These additions will also include WA State Patrol Trooper Sean O’Connell.
The Mason County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard is completely funded by public donations and they do not charge when requested to participate in public functions.
The Honor Guard is a tradition started by Deputy Sheriff Chris Mondry in 2010.  Since then, the Honor Guard has participated in every line-of-duty death memorial in WA State, participated in local events such as the Belfair parade, and have attended several memorial services throughout the region.
The cost to compete in the competition, the national training and to participate in the memorial event, as well as the cost of food is being personally covered by team members.  The Honor Guard is requesting donations to cover just the cost of the air fares and lodging.  Round trip air fare for 2 ($1,450.00) and lodging for two rooms over four days ($1,500.00) comes to $2,950.00.
