    Officer Chris Yung, 35, died in a crash in Bristow.

    Two law enforcement officials who died last year in the line of duty  -- including one from Prince William County -- are being honored in Washington Tuesday.
     
    The names of Margaret Anderson, a National Park Ranger, and Chris Yung, a Prince William County police officer, are being unveiled Tuesday morning at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

      Anderson was fatally shot following a traffic stop on Jan. 1, 2012 at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state.
     
    Yung, a former U.S. Marine, was killed in a motorcycle collision on New Year's Eve while responding to a traffic call.
     
    The unveiling ceremony is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday.
     
    The memorial is maintained by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a private non-profit organization.
