JACKSON, Tenn. — Immediately following the law enforcement memorial ceremony Friday, officers were served a free lunch by the Marine Corps League Detachment 735 of Jackson. The Marines served more than 200 hot dogs and hamburgers complete with sides outside the Jackson Police Department. The veterans say it was a simple way to say thank you for the protection officers provide every day. “Law enforcement across the country has been the topic of a lot of conversation,” said Casey Palmer with Marine Corps League Detachment 735. “We wanted to come out here and show them that, hey, we support you and we’re very, very happy to have you protecting our streets every day.” The Marine Corps League is made up of honorably discharged Marines and Navy corpsmen. They meet once a month.
