ROCHESTER, Minn.- Dozens of community members filled the parking lot of the Hy-Vee off 37th St. for the Touch A Truck and More event where kids got the chance to see city vehicles up close and personal. They were able to thank those who put their lives on the line for us daily - like those we remember on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"It is a good day to celebrate those that made the ultimate sacrifice, but I think a lot of those that did that that died 17 years ago today would want us to do this."
All of the funds raised at the event will go toward building a Law Enforcement Memorial at Soldiers Field Park near the Veterans Memorial.
Captain Behrn's father in law died in the line of duty and believes this memorial will be a wonderful asset to the community.

"Those are some strong, amazing people and we need a place to honor those that went before us and those that stayed behind and were survivors."
