Local police are encouraging all of us to take an early lunch break and line the streets for fallen Pierce County Deputy Daniel McCartney. His funeral procession starts today at the North Gate of JBLM at 11 am.  Let's show how much we love and respect our local police officers and how much they sacrifice for our safety. Our show of support means so much to the family right now. This way they understand that Deputy McCartney's life had meaning and how much we all love this brave policeman.
