Park Ranger Margaret Anderson's Memorial Service

You can go to this web site to view video excerpts from yesterday's Memorial Service for National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson who was killed in the line of duty on New Year's Day.  I viewed these with a large lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.

May Margaret rest in peace with the knowledge that she did her duty saving the lives of  others.  Let us never forget her sacrifice nor that of her family.


  1. I watched the services on streaming cam and have 2 reflections. First, Sec. Salazar is a wonderful speaker--thoughtful and very reverent in his words. Second, when Director Jarvis presented Margaret's flat hat to her husband Eric, I totally lost it. All the frustrations of the past week hit me then.

  2. Yes I agree. And listening to Margaret's father give his farewell also choked me up.
