Mark Wahlberg’s Latest Act Stuns Many

Actor Mark Wahlberg happened to find himself in West Des Moines, Iowa, for a screening of his film 'Patriot's Day' and a fundraiser. While he was there, he decided to stop in and pay respects to the families of two fallen officers.

Sgt. Tony Beminio and Officer Justin Martin were killed in the line of duty in November when they were ambushed just for being law enforcement officers. Wahlberg was touched by the tragedy and sought to do something, so he arranged to have the premiere of his film in West Des Moines.

Wahlberg dedicated the movies to Iowan heroes. "It's never easy but to know that we didn't forgot and to honor them in a way that they should is very important," he said.

Police Chief Dana Wingler was touched by Wahlberg's gesture. He told Local 5 News: "It kind of restores our faith not only in our community but it shows us how far family really extends."
