    The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is reserving this space on our website as a permanent memorial to those in our Armed Forces who gave the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11/01. We extend our gratitude to each Fallen Hero who served during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom.

    Our hope is that the families and friends of the Fallen Heroes know that we will never forget what they sacrificed. And as time marches on we should do our best to make sure their names are not forgotten. Remembrance is so very special to those who lost someone in service to our country.

    God bless all of our troops, especially those who are in harm’s way. We also offer our prayers to the military families of our nation. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office will never forget.
