Road Named for Murdered National Park Ranger

Twenty years ago National Park Ranger Robert McGhee was shot and killed in the line of duty at Gulf Islands National Seashore.  Unbeknown to McGhee, he stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation that was occupied by two escaped convicts who shot and killed him.

On July 1 in Ocean Springs, Mississippi a road was named after Robert McGhee to commemorate his sacrifice to protect us all.  For details you can check the links below.
