James “Jimmy” McNaughton, 27, was the first NYPD officer to give his life for his country while serving as a soldier in Iraq. In June of 2005 his Commanding Officer asked for volunteers with police experience to help train the Iraqi Highway Patrol.  There were several Police Officers within the unit, however, Jimmy told his fellow Soldiers to stand down.  Jimmy stated that he would accept the dangerous assignment based on the fact that his fellow Soldiers had families and children.  He was killed by a sniper on August 2, 2005, while completing this assignment.

For more details about the event, please call Vinny at 631-745-3813 or visit the Facebook page or the website.

There’s also a YouTube film about this brave man and his sacrifice.
