The late D. Robert Harvey of Lubbock honored in nation's capital

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock County Sheriff's Department Corporal, who died in the line of duty, is now honored on a national memorial in Washington D.C.  Last weekend, D. Robert Harvey's name was added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Harvey died in a car accident in his patrol car last year.

The memorial has been there since 2001 and each year names of officers who have died while doing their job are added.  More than 18,000 names of fallen officers are carved into the wall of the memorial. 

The Lubbock Sheriff's office sent about a dozen officers along with Corporal Harvey's parents and brother to this year's ceremony on the steps of our nation's capitol.  Harvey's family was presented with the Medal of Valor and said the trip was bitter sweet.

"We said many times that we wished our son was there with us instead of us being there for him because he would have loved it," Diana k. Harvey, Cpl Harvey's mother, said.   "He loved history.  It was bitter sweet, but we were so proud to be his parents."
