The United States Honor Flag is coming to Colorado to honor fallen UCCS police Officer Garrett Swasey.

The Honor Flag was flown over Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks. It has since been flown in honor of thousands of fallen police officers and firefighters.

Swasey's heroic actions likely saved other lives during the attack at Planned Parenthood last Friday. He was one of the first to respond after getting the call about an active shooter. Friends of the officer believe he was the one caught on camera courageously walking towards the side of the building he knew the shooter was on as other officers were under fire.

Swasey's funeral will be Friday at 1 p.m. at New Life Church in Colorado Springs.
