There are many unsung heroes who work hard day in and day out to make our National Parks an enjoyable and safe place to visit. Sadly, Ranger Anderson died in the line of duty during a traffic stop/block leaving behind a husband and small children.

The Washington State Medal of Honor ceremony for NPS Ranger Margaret Anderson will be held this Friday, May 3, 2013 at the state capital.
