On Decmber 15, 2010, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered while conducting operations against rip crews in southern Arizona. His murder shocked the nation, devastated his family, and left a wound on the US Border Patrol.
This week, suspects in Terry’s murder will be tried in Tucson. His family will be forced to relive the pain and suffering they endured in the aftermath of his death. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they seek to claim some small piece of justice. No trial or prison sentence will ever fill the void that exists in their family. Our support for them and for Brian Terry will never waver.
The National Border Patrol Council exists to “protect those who protect our borders.” Brian Terry laid down his life to protect his teammates, his community, and his nation on that fatefull night. We are grateful for his courage, we mourn his loss, and we will not forget him. Honor First.
