So Their Sacrifice is Never Forgotten


founder/ CHIEF OF STAFF, wounded officers initiative

Rickey D. McGhee is a veteran of the United States Army serving as a Military Policeman, Military Police Investigator and Traffic Accident investigator. Rick is also a co-founder and Chief of Staff of the Wounded Officers Initiative. 

After serving 15 years in the U.S. Army and receiving a Honorable Discharge, Rick Joined the Winter Garden Police Department and performed duties as a patrolman, Community Police Officer and Detective, retiring in 2015 after serving 21 years. 

While still serving with the Winter Garden Police Department, Rick met with Pete Hernandez and Scott Nylander at a small coffee shop in Ocoee Florida. Pete expressed his thoughts and ideas aloud after attending the Police Memorial in Washington D.C. Realizing through our years of combined knowledge and experience, we all had similar beliefs and obligations to our fellow officers. From that meeting an organization was formed.
