U.S. Border Patrol agent, Nicholas Ivie, was killed last week in a rugged area of the Arizona/Mexico border while responding to an alarm sensor that had gone off. Under the darkness of night, Ivie opened fire on two fellow agents approaching from the opposite side, thinking they were armed smugglers. They returned fire and Ivie was killed.
Today, Nicholas Ivie returned home to be laid to rest in the Spanish Fork Cemetery. The streets of Spanish Fork, where Ivie was a former volunteer for the local EMS Department, were lined with Boy Scouts with American flags paying tribute to a fallen hero.
Here are some images from the day.
