Law enforcement honor guards from as far away as Texas came to Sparta Monday to honor Wisconsin trooper Anthony Borostowski.

Hundreds attended a visitation and service to remember the 34-year-old State Patrol officer from Tomah, who died in a traffic crash last week. A Texas Highway Patrol honor guard unit drove 19 hours to attend Borostowski's service -- and Sergeant Paul Simpson tells W-K-O-W T-V it was worth it to pay honor to whom he called a "fallen brother, and to support the family in their time of need." State Patrol Lieutenant Dan Gruebele said it was "unbelievable" to feel the support od law enorcement, fire agencies, medical personnel, and others from around the country. Borostowski also had military honors, after he served three tours of duty in the Middle East as a National Guard medic.
