Brotherhood in Ohio
The Brotherhood of the Fallen in Columbus, Ohio for another funeral:
- COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)–“We’re brothers and sisters that take the same oath.”
Those were words spoken by Chicago Police Officer Steven Vidljinovic outside of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Westerville.
“Our job is dangerous,” Vidljinovic said. “When the worst of the worst happens, we want to be there for anything that they need from us.”
Vidljinovic is one of three Chicago officers not only representing his department, but also the Brotherhood for the Fallen at Columbus Officer Steve Smith’s visitation and funeral.
The Brotherhood for the Fallen has chapters in Chicago, in New York, and in Aurora, Colorado. Each chapter sends at least two members (police officers) to the funerals of every officer killed while serving his or her community.
Unfortunately, a lot of travel this year for the organization. RIP Officer Smith.
