Slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s family unveiled a statue in honor of the officer killed in a 2010 shootout with a Mexican gang.
The gun used to kill Terry was part of Operation Fast and Furious, which provided weapons to criminals to track Mexican gun smuggling routes—known as “gun walking.” The operation fell apart when investigators lost track of over 1,400 of the 2,000 guns sold to smugglers.

Terry’s cousin, Robert Heyer said, “That iconic image of Brian carrying his BordTac team member on his shoulders represents everything good about Brian, his strength, his determination, his attention to detail, his love for the Border Patrol and his love for his fellow agents,” Fox News reported.

The Naco Border Patrol station in Arizona is named in Terry’s honor. Only one other station is named for a fallen agent—the Murrieta, Calif. station is named for two agents who were killed in 1967.

New BP Station opened in Naco, 15 miles from here, in honor of Agent Brian Terry, Fast and Furious victim. Nice gesture, community supports. — Wayne Cardejon (@waynekeoua) September 19, 2012
The Brian Terry Foundation was established by Terry’s family to honor his memory and to support families of slain and injured Border Patrol agents.

The Fast and Furious scandal has haunted outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder for most of his tenure in office. The statue is a stark reminder that policies in Washington have consequences with real people who put their lives on the line.
@MyFoxTampaBay More of Holders “Fast and Furious” handywork, time for the truth #BrianTerry and all those cut down in the line of duty… — John ferguson (@jfergusfl) March 2, 2015
