    The way the police treat people where I live you would probably get arrested for celebrating it.

    Of course it's forgotten. Why celebrate the people that save your behind in a pinch. [​IMG]

    Fabulous cause, I am all for it!

    I have had many encounters with LEO's and I try to always let them know that I really appreciate them. Firefighters, too.
