Not for fame or reward, not for place or for rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity but in obedience to duty as they understood it, these men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all and died. ~Confederate Veteran

On the 20th anniversary of his line of duty death, we remember Sergeant Travis Maki of the Elko County Sheriff’s Office. He will always be greatly missed.
End o...f Watch: Saturday, November 29, 1997

Sergeant Maki was placing the flares at the accident on I-80 when he jumped out of the way of an oncoming truck coming through the thick fog. He fell approximately 65 feet, landing headfirst, and was killed instantly.
