This Tuesday, some names will be added to the wall:
- Please join the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation this Tuesday, August 25, 12:00 PM, at Gold Star Families Memorial and Park
At that time, the CPMF will pay tribute to three fallen Chicago police officers whose deaths span several decades by adding their names to the memorial wall. The names of Chicago police officers Laubet Zaccard (7/23/1946), Charles Stine (4/21/1952) and John Lynch (12/19/1969) will be displayed for the first time and will join an honor roll of 574 other Chicago police heroes who were killed or died while serving their city. The additions come as the result of research conducted by volunteers who interview surviving family members and ancestors and comb over old police reports, news accounts and pension board files to determine whether officer deaths were related to their duties as Chicago police officers.
All are welcome to attend.

God bless the Fallen.
