    “I don’t want to take away from the military. Not at all,” he said. “But while they are fighting in another country, there are people fighting right here at home, too, in law enforcement. They are fighting a different battle, but they get killed just the same".

    very well said

    people forget that the military aren't the only ones risking there lives to protect there country and families. Law Enforcement personnel risk there lives everyday protecting and making the streets safe, Some soldiers are lucky to ever see battle or combat so don't know what it is really like putting your life on the line.

    He died doing the job he loved and believed in. You should be proud of him.

    From this day to the ending of the world we in it shall be remembered. We lucky few, we band of brothers. For he who today sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.
    If at first you don't succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn't for you.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to there level and beat you on experience.

    I wish not to take anything away from the military either, but ya damn right!!

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    The article was really well done.
    Very touching story.
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    It was an honor meeting you in DC. You carry your father's memory with honor, my friend.

    Excellent article!

    Thank you, bufford, for sharing your fathers legacy with us. It's truly an honor to get to know him through his son! As I mentioned in an earlier post, sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance. I am humbled by those who are willing to put their lives on the line for the freedom of others.

    I enjoyed the article, thanks for sharing your family.

    Very moving article. While its hard to read articles such as those, it allows us all to realize what we as officers do on a daily basis.

    RIP. SIR BUFFORD you are missed.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
