Heroes’ Bridge Overpass Dedications

The Troopers Memorial Fund, working with the support of State Assemblywoman Jody Giglio, State Senator Anthony Palumbo and State Assemblyman Fred Thiele, all Eastern Long Island Representatives, was successful in our efforts to get three State bridge overpasses named in the honor of 3 of our 16 heroes. Our efforts are continuing to accomplish this for all 16 who made the ultimate sacrifice.  The signs were erected closest to the location where our heroes lost their life in the line of duty while serving the people of the State of New York.  Below are some photos of the event held on Feb. 10, 2022.
