Valdosta - Airmen at Moody Air Force Base gathered to honor fallen military and civilian law enforcement officers.

They placed roses on the memorial for the seven Georgia police officers, state troopers and deputies killed in the line of duty since last May.

They also honored the life of five Air Force Officers who lost their lives.

This year, the ceremony hit close to home as one of Team Moody's own was killed by enemy fire last October.  "We lost Airman 1st class Lee Bernard Chavis during a recent deployment into Baghdad so it gives us another opportunity to remember him as a hero," says Master Sergeant Samuel Johnson of the 824th Security Forces.

The ceremony is part of Police Week, a week dedicated to honoring the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.
