In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and that calendar week as National Police Week. Established by Congress in 1962, National Police Week recognizes officers killed in the line of duty.
The May 22 run took the riders through Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever AFB, Fort Carson, and to the terrazzo outside the Cadet Chapel where they paused for a moment of silence. (US Air Force photo/Liz Copan)
