Daniel Miles James, Jr.

Border Patrol Agent Daniel James succumbed to injuries received one month earlier in an automobile accident while attempting to stop suspected illegal immigrants south of Freer, Texas.

While Agent James and his partner were turning around, their vehicle struck a dip in the road, causing it to flip over. Agent James was thrown from the vehicle and pinned between it and a fence. He was transported to a local hospital where he was hospitalized until passing away.

Agent James had been employed with the US Border Patrol for three years, assigned to the Freer Border Patrol Station which is part of Laredo Sector in Texas; he had previously served with the United States Marine Corps during Operation Desert Storm. He is survived by his wife, two children, and his parents.

I visit here often just to try to grasp the loss of my son. Today was no different. Except that while hurting inside, I decided to see what this day was like in history. I came across your EOW. Now that I’m the President of West Texas C.O.P.S, I see things a bit different. To honor my son on a daily bases, I now honor you and others who have given the ultimate sacrifice. I pray that your family finds peace and know that we are now all family. Thank you for your service. We’ll be here for your parents, siblings, coworkers children’s, spouse and another’s whom are effected by the loss. You honored your county, now we’ll remember and honor you forever. RIP
