Death of Virginia State Police Trooper
All AAST members:
We are sad to report that Virginia State Police Trooper Mark D. Barrett died on Tuesday, September 14, 2010, during a training dive in Lake Anna .
Trooper Barrett and other members of the Virginia State Police's Search and Recovery Team were performing deep-water dives in the lake. As Trooper Barrett and his dive partner were ascending to the surface, the other trooper noticed he was having difficulty and assisted him to the surface.
Other troopers immediately started CPR and he was transported to a local hospital where he died.
Trooper Barrett had served with the Virginia State Police for three years. He is survived by his wife and two children.
Sympathy cards may be sent to the Virginia State Police, 7700 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond , VA 23235 . Questions regarding funeral arrangements or survivor benefit fund information can be obtained by calling the Virginia State Police at (804) 674-2016.
Please keep the family of Trooper Barrett and the men and women of the Virginia State Police in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
With Honor and Respect,
American Association of State Trooper s

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.

Rest in peace , Trooper Barrett. Condolences to family , friends and colleagues.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
