6 Reasons Why North Dakota Is The Most Patriotic State

I think it is important to give mention and honor the loss of one of our own recently. As you may know, Fargo police officer Jason Moszer, a six-year veteran with the police force, gave his life while in the line of duty on February 10th during a standoff in north Fargo. This has not happened in Fargo in over 130 years. As I’m writing this now, his funeral is currently underway. It is a horrible, tragic loss and one that has touched the souls of many.

During times like these it is important to come together and honor the many men and women keeping us safe and putting their lives on the line for our sake. Whether they be police officers, firefighters, or members of the military – current or past – we should be thanking them and offering our support to not only them but the families of those affected by their loss.

I think I can safely say that all of us wish something like this had never happened, but I’m proud to see the state of North Dakota honoring Jason Moszer in such a way that proves we are the most patriotic state. This list is to reflect on why we are, and why we should be proud of our country.

Though I’m sure all of our hearts are heavy because of this tragedy, we are still strong as a state and remain patriotic. My thoughts go out to Jason Mozser’s family and those close to him, and I thank him for all he has done for our community, and all the other men and women who have and would do the same. Thank you.
