"They Gave Their All"

Dunn County Sheriff's Department ~ Wisconsin

On the day they had to fall,
they gave their all.
Wearing brown or blue,
they were protecting and serving you.

It started as just a simple call
and ended in tragedy.
"Officer down," the radio announced.
At the scene the brave man pronounced dead,
The killers had fled.

Another widow cries,
yet no one tries
 to stop the killing
of these men and women willing
to risk their lives everyday for you.

 Always remember the law enforcement
that gave their all,
on the day they had to fall.
