Donations being collected to honor fallen deputy
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The Honor Network and the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office are teaming up to honor Lt. Steven Whitstine.

The Honor Network said the sheriff's office requested the U.S. Honor Flag for the fallen deputy.
”Recognized as a national treasure, its without any hesitation we made the offer to the Sheriff’s Office to bring the U.S. Honor Flag to Honor Lieutenant Steven Whitstine," said Christopher Heisler, founder of The Honor Network and the U.S. Honor Flag.
