The Austin Chapter Probate Jess Eckard lead a ride to the Texas Peace Officer Memorial to pay tribute to a partner of his, El Paso PD Det. Charles Heinrich. Eckard and Heinrich were involved in a gunfight with a wanted subject on this date in 1983. Eckard was able to subdue the subject, but Heinrich had recieved a head wound that ultimately took his life.

A very somber and personal tribute was conducted at the memorial. Thank you to those that offered support, to include not only Austin Chapter, but also Bastrop and Alamo City.
