Those in Indianapolis showed their gratitude on Sunday for the men and women who serve their community, and there was a special honor for a Michiana native.

Officer Rod Bradway, a native of Nappanee, was killed in the line of duty in September while trying to save a woman and her baby.

On Sunday, dozens gathered at a local church for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. The ceremony included a special moment for Bradway. His son, Jonathon, lit a candle to symbolize the sacrifice of all fallen officers.

The father of Indianapolis officer David Moore, who was also killed on the job, says he knows just what the family is experiencing.

“It'll be the first Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthday, and it takes a while to get adjusted to that and this type of service, this type of recognition really helps you through those tough spots,” said Spencer Moore.

Bradway was laid to rest in September with a 20-mile procession through much of Indianapolis.
