Watertown police officers Miguel Colon and Richard Munger received a dose of warm southern hospitality earlier this month in a trip to Georgia arranged by policemen there. It was the first out-of-state visit the officers have made in relation to April’s terrorism events.
They were flown down to Georgia on Friday, May 31 and stayed through Sunday, June 2 on funds raised by the LaGrange Police Department in Troup County, where the Watertown officers were the guests of honor at a charity run benefitting The One Fund Boston.
Colon and Munger, in white, got a surprise tour of of the Atlanta Braves’ Turner Fieldbefore catching a game.
