For Airmen at Moody Air Force Base, National Police week is about remembering the soldiers and law enforcers who never make it home.

Staff Sergeant Avonte Seabrooks' cousin, a navy seal died while fighting the war on terrorism.

"This means a pretty big thing for me when I know that when I'm out here I got to honor him right and show him some respect back," said Seabrooks.

Seabrooks and 23 other men in Moody's Security forces did just that.

In a rescue simulation mission, four groups went into action clearing out this building here, shooting down the targets--to rescue a dummy weighing 250 pounds.

"Any officer no matter military law enforcement or local law enforcement who has lost their life we come out here to honor them," said First Lieutenant Ralph Johnson.

Johnson says these fallen heroes may be gone but making sure they're prepared for whatever comes their way is one way they can make sure they're not forgotten.

This was the first year Moody held a training simulation in honor of those killed in the line of duty but organizers say they hope to keep it going.
