Features policing experts, widows of slain officers and recipients of Tunnel to Towers benefits, and the first recipient of Just The News' Blue Courage Award
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In a special broadcast event to restore trust in law enforcement and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of American communities, "Blue Courage" will air tonight on Real America's Voice in conjunction with media partner Just The News.
This special broadcast event puts a spotlight on the sacrifice, bravery, and public service of law enforcement officers throughout America during the crisis in community policing that arose from the riots in American cities over the past several months. The program sets out to remind Americans of the sense of duty and honor held by law enforcement officers and the ultimate sacrifices that some officers have paid, as reflected in the stories of loss from their surviving loved ones.
Reflecting on the importance of this special broadcast event, Eric Greitens, former Governor of Missouri, former U.S. Navy SEAL, and the host of the program, said, "As a law and order nation, we must renew our commitment to police officers in every community in America. 'Blue Courage' is a very special broadcast event that reminds us of the risks taken and sacrifices made by law enforcement officers everywhere. These men and women on the frontlines – and their families – need and deserve our support."
This special event will feature law enforcement experts, including former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik; policy experts from the Heritage Foundation; U.S. Rep. and U.S. Army veteran Greg Steube (R, FL-17); Deputy Police Chief Larry O'Toole (St. Louis, MO); Alexis Bohannon, the widow of Officer Tamarris Bohannon (St. Louis, MO); Ann Dorn, the widow of retired Captain David Dorn (St. Louis, MO); actor and producer Kirk Cameron; and others.
"It's time for us to unite as a nation once again to support those men and women who wear blue every day and risk their lives to make our communities throughout America better and safer," said Bernard Kerik, former NYPD Commissioner on 9/11. "All Americans will value the tradition and success of community policing when they watch 'Blue Courage,' and appreciate that there is no challenge too great for the people of the United States of America."
Cindy Chesna, a Tunnel to Towers Ambassador and the widow of Sgt. Michael Chesna who was killed in the line of duty in Weymouth, Massachusetts, will be honored as the first-ever recipient of the Blue Courage Award from Just The News on this special broadcast. "There couldn't have been a more deserving recipient of the first-ever Blue Courage Award than Cindy Chesna," said John Solomon, the Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Just The News. "Cindy's loss has inspired her to serve other families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. She is now living her life as a truly noble cause," he concluded.
