Veterans hold a special place in our hearts and minds. They put their lives on the line to protect our way of life – for their families and for our families. From WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Arabian Gulf to Afghanistan and Iraq; the brave souls who have served on behalf of America have experienced things that most of us couldn’t imagine.

Today the Portland Police Association honors all of our Nation’s veterans whose hard work and sacrifice allow us to enjoy the many freedoms of living in a free society. The PPA maintains a close relationship with all branches of the United States military, many of whom continue to serve in the United States Armed Forces as members of the Reserves and the National Guard.

To those who have served, past and present, you are heroes in every sense of the word and deserve our eternal gratitude.

Thank you for your service.

Daryl Turner, President
Portland Police Association
