House of Representatives To Honor Slain Park Ranger

Last January National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson was shot and killed in the line of duty while attempting to protect the visitors to Mount Rainier National Park.  The US House of Representative has voted to honor her ultimate sacrifice to duty by naming the Eatonville, Washington Post Office after her.

The Visitor Center at Organ Pipe National Monument was named for Park Ranger Kris Eggle who was also shot and  killed in the line of duty in 2003.  This memorialization was also the result of an act of Congress in November of 2003.

You can learn more about both these heroes and our remembrance of them at:
