Little Rock Capitol Rotunda
September 1, 2010
Michael Neal is the Arkansas Game and Fish officer whose selfless actions are credited with stopping a West Memphis police shootout that left two officers dead and two others wounded on May 20, 2010. We were joined by many family and friends of Michael Neal, especially Chief Robert Paudert of West Memphis, Arkansas, who lost his son and nephew on May 20, 2010. Chief Paudert was accompanied by his wife, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, and his nephew’s family. Please take a moment to remember Sgt. Brandon Paudert and Officer William Evans and all those who have lost their lives while serving America.
