A memorial service for US Forest Service officer Chris Upton, 37, who was shot and killed last week during a routine patrol of a recreation site on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, will be held on Saturday.

The NPS will be represented at the ceremony by a group of protection rangers with marked vehicles.

Director Jarvis has authorized NPS employees to wear black mourning bands through the date of interment (tomorrow). They should be removed thereafter.
