FBI Special Agent Hubert J. Treacy Jr. was killed 75 years ago when he was shot trying to take two U.S. Army deserters into custody in March 1942.

Now the FBI is honoring Treacy with a memorial in Abington, the Virginia town where he was shot, WSET.com reports [1]

On Monday, local law enforcement officials and family members of Treacy plan to dedicate a memorial in his honor.

Helping make the dedication possible were the town of Abingdon, the Society of Former Special Agents – Blue Ridge Chapter, and the FBI Agents Association.
