Remembering our Officers who made the Supreme Sacrifice while in Military Service





Our very own Corporal Robert Hernandez was killed in 2006 while serving in Iraq. A Staff Sergeant with the US Army, Robert Hernandez was killed in Al Taquaddum, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle during combat operations. He is the only member of the PGPD to be killed in combat while serving our nation. Cpl. Hernandez served the Prince George's County Police Department for ten years and was assigned to District II prior to his deployment. He was 47 years old at the time of his death, and is survived by his fiancee and three children.







The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that timeframe, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.

First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names.
It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.

I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
