    Cops on Top plans to climb Denali in May, in memory of Montana Highway Patrol trooper Mike Haynes. (NBC News)
    Sunday, March 7, 2010

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A group of law enforcement officers from across the country want to climb Denali in honor of a fallen highway patrol trooper.

    The group Cops on Top tackles a different climbing expedition every year. This year the organization plans to scale Denali, in honor of Montana Highway Patrol trooper Mike Haynes. Haynes was struck and killed by a drunk driver last March.

    Two of the officers making the climb worked closely with Haynes, but they didn't know he was the honoree until after they signed up for the climb.

    "It was kind of overwhelming," said the group's Caleb Pleasants. "It's really an honor that it just lined up that way, especially knowing Mike and being from here -- it was just kind of perfect how it lined up."

    The climbers plan to touch down in Anchorage on May 2. They are scheduled to summit in mid-May, during National Peace Officers Memorial Week.

    Nice that they would do this for a Fallen Brother.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
