This article and photos came from the

NYPD Spring 3100 magazine, vol 71, issue 5.

This is a great tribute from the US Navy.

S/F Sgt. Thomas Durkin – NYPD, 23rd Pct.

The Commanding Officer of our unit “Inshore Boat Unit 25” was LCDR Yaron Keter. He is the one who gave us permission or this never would have happened. The photo’s and the video were made by Chief Jason Robinson. The names were put on the boats by BM2 Alvin Kuhn who was up until 0330 in the morning and then did a 12 hour watch. The Patrol Leader for the photo shoot was BM1 Ines Hernandez. There were only 3 NYPD cops on this deployment. The shoot and the video took hours to do on their own time.

These men are from all over the country and never met the men they honored.

And a special THANK YOU to the US NAVY
