He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Tonight was the one year anniversary of Briggs in the line of duty death. I know you and he were tight - being Marines and all.... Anyway, being a fellow LEO (Manchester) today has caused me to pause and reflect on the example you and Briggs impressed on so many people.
I know you and Mike are up there causing havoc and keeping things in order. Anyway, just wanted to drop a line to say that you and Mike have not been forgotten. Please pass this on to Mike, I think he would appreciate it.

We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of that dark day in August of 97. I was relieving you that Sunday morning. I think about you often and some of the stuff we had been through. You are a true inspiration to all. The day we said good bye to you is a day I will never forget. I miss you and send my prayers to you and your family every day.

I haven’t been to NH in a long time. On the drive up, I always use the stretch of highway dedicated to him to reflect on the memories I have of him. Although, I was only ten, he had a profound impact on my life. Almost 10 years later I can honestly say that I am still not OK with losing him.
But I know everyday he is looking down on me. My guardian angel. I hope that I make him proud and that I turn out to be half the person he was.
Always in my heart<3

To Jeremy's family
I am the sister of New Hampshire's most recent fallen officer, Bruce McKay of Franconia. I recently learned that my brother was one of the officers at the scene when Jeremy's killer was aprehended. It is such an honor to witness the incredible bond that officers and their families have for one another when faced with tragedy in the line of duty. Having just been through what you went through in August 1997, I know your pain and anguish and I am sending you prayers and hope that time has helped you heal. I wish I had a time machine right about now for my own pain, but I know that the support of others makes all the difference in the world. If you plan to attend Police week in DC in 2008, I would love to meet you there.

Jeremy Charron is a hero who will always be remembered for his loyalty and sacrifice to New Hampshire and his country.
He was a proud and loving man who would do anything for anybody.
I know Jeremy's father well, and I remember playing football once or twice with Jeremy and his dad many years ago when we played those "Turkey Bowl" games in Hillsboro.
Jeremy made his family proud.
May his light continue to shine for all those who follow.
