In December 2010, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry found himself in the midst of a firefight with several illegal immigrants in Santa Cruz County, AZ.
Terry lost his life that day, and now he’s been honored with a statue at the Border Patrol station in Bisbee, AZ. That same station now carries his name.
Terry’s death helped publicize the government’s controversial “Fast and Furious” program and created a scandal for the Obama administration.
Brian’s cousin Robert Heyer spoke to Fox News after the ceremony.
“That iconic image of Brian carrying his BordTac team member on his shoulders represents everything good about Brian, his strength, his determination, his attention to detail, his love for the Border Patrol and his love for his fellow agents,” Heyer said.
