SCRANTON -- There were plenty of souvenirs for sale all over Saturday, but one shirt stood out from the rest in Scranton.

State police were selling t-shirts that honor Corporal Bryon Dickson, who was killed in September during the ambush at the State Police Barracks at Blooming Grove.

Corporal Dickson's widow designed the shirts that include the State Police logo, U.S. Marines and Dickson's badge number inside a shamrock.

The shirt sales will help the Dickson family.

"How special was it to have Tiffany design this. That is something we wanted to make sure that was done just so she is at the head of everything, to make sure she is involved," said Trooper Dan Nilon, State Police.

The shirts will also be available at the Wilkes-Barre parade on Sunday and next weekend at the parade in Stroudsburg.
