EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) — The public will once again get a chance to join the U.S. Border Patrol in paying tribute to agents who have died in the line of duty, but they’ll have to do it from home.

The ceremony is scheduled for 8 a.m. MST Thursday. It is being conducted in conjunction with “National Law Enforcement Memorial Month.”

“The U.S. Border Patrol extends an invitation to members of the community to join us virtually in this important remembrance of the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting America’s borders,” the Border Patrol said in a statement.
