Memorial at Courthouse

This memorial to Deputy Sheriff Larry Griffith stands in front of the Lassen County Courthouse. The memorial plaque reads:
Lassen County Deputy Sheriff
Larry Griffith
was killed in the line of duty
March 2, 1995
On that date, Deputies Larry Griffith, Henry Mahan, William Freitas, and Wayne Aldridge were on duty on the Madeline Plains and were ambushed by a gunman.
The community honors those who go in harm's way to serve and protect us, and mourns the loss of one of our own.
Placed by
Rotary Club of Susanville
Lassen County Peace Officers Assoc.

Crowd: Yay, yay!

PaulAhh: This is a marvelous post. You, you ... well, you have really pushed the envelope here. What a wonderful tribute to one of our heroes. And, Randee, correct me if I'm wrong, this is courthouse week, isn't it?

Nice to have the Rotary club publicly acknowledge those men and women who put themselves on the line to protect us.

Great picture and post today thanks!

I apologise for this "mass comment" but I could do with your help today over at South Shields Daily Photo. Help promote the rights of photographers!

Applauding your local Rotary Club, for putting up this memorial.

Had to tell my husband, since he has been active in our local Rotary Club for years and years and years.
