The Missouri State Highway Patrol honored one of its own last week, holding blood drives throughout the state in his memory.

"It's a very easy way for people to save lives," said Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop B Sargent Eric Brown.

Corporal Michael Webster died 24 years ago in the line of duty after he was struck by a drunk driver.

"When you experience things like the shooting in Las Vegas, it makes a need for that blood even higher. It makes it even more important for people to give blood," Brown said.

Since Webster's death, his family has held a blood drive in his memory around the time of his death.
