[ISP] Blood Drive - Fort Wayne District
Start Date: 6/11/2012 All Day
End Date: 6/11/2012
Entry Description

On July 10, 2001, Sergeant Dan R. Starnes of the Morgan County, IN Sheriff’s Department lost his life as a result of gunshot wounds sustained during a line of duty gun battle with a burglary suspect four weeks earlier.  To keep his memory alive his surviving spouse, Janice organized the Sgt. Dan R. Starnes Memorial Blood Drive in Morgan County later that year and has organized a blood drive each year since in Dan’s memory.  In 2007, she decided to take the blood drive statewide and renamed it the Indiana Fallen Officers Blood Drive.  This month the 2012 drive begins with donation sites located in nearly every county statewide.
