I am pleased to announce that the viewers of our new weekly series, Wake Up America! Back the Blue Tuesdays, PT News Network viewers raised $2,847 for the families of two McAllen Police officers killed in the line of duty two weeks ago while responding to a domestic disturbance.
On July 11th, Officers Ismael Chavez and Edelmiro Garza, Jr. responded to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, the two officers were ambushed and tragically killed. Garza was an officer for about nine years and Chavez was an officer for about two and a half years, according to McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez
They were exceptional officers and active members in the community. They gave selflessly to the cause of keeping people safe and unwavering, paid the ultimate price in fulfillment of that service.
Our donation was made through a GoFundMe arranged by the McAllen Guns & Hoses Foundation, on behalf of the family.
