Patriot Guard Mission Complete
In Memoriam
Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputy Brian S. Etheridge
To Protect and To Serve

Kansas communities mourn the loss of Deputy Brian Etheridge who died in the line of duty on Monday, 28 Sept 2009, in Wichita, KS.  Deputy Etheridge had served with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department for a year and a half.  Our law enforcement community is a major part of our Patriot Guard missions.  They keep us safe as we travel to missions.  We respect and honor their service and commitment to protecting all citizens.  Their loss is our loss. The Patriot Guard extends our sincere sympathy to the Family.  God bless Brian and his family.  Please pray for Brian's family and his law enforcement family. 
The Patriot Guard is privileged and honored to be invited to attend this brave deputy's final farewell.  If you can, please make this mission to support his family, show your respect, and honor this Fallen Hero.
