Memorial Service Held For Fallen Rangers

Mount Rushmore National Memorial

National Park News

On May 16th, as part of Peace Officers Memorial Week, rangers attending the Northern Great Plains advanced law enforcement refresher at Mount Rushmore held a memorial service to honor the 38 protection rangers who have fallen in the line of duty

Rangers marched into the Mount Rushmore outdoor amphitheater, where Wind Cave chief ranger Rick Mossman gave a short speech reminding rangers of the history and tradition of being a ranger and to always honor our fallen comrades.  

The two newest seasonal law enforcement rangers attending presented a wreath in their honor.  Each participant read the name of one of the fallen rangers with a bell rung after each name.  A bugler then played taps.
