The 366th Security Forces Squadron, combined with support from the Mountain Home and Boise Police Departments, hosted a Peace Officers Memorial Day retreat ceremony at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, May 15, 2014. The event included a speech from Chief Nick Schilz from the Mountain Home Police Department, the playing of “Amazing Grace” on bagpipes by Lt. Rob Gallas from the Boise Police Department, a 21-gun salute, the playing of taps and concluded with a formal military retreat ceremony and flag folding. The event came near the end of National Police Week, originally established by President John F. Kennedy to recognize the contributions of the nation’s law enforcement personnel, as well as recognize those who fell in the line of duty. The 366th SFS honored National Police Week with a range of events including a Defender Challenge obstacle course, an open house, pistol shoot and a “Ruck March to Remember.”
