Petty Officer Chism, today marks the 7th anniversary of your tragic death. You folks in the Coast Guard are a vital part of law enforcement yet so often, people see you just in the life saving and national defense roll. You put your lives on the line every day doing your jobs and sometimes, sadly, lives are taken.

Though you may have been taken from your family and friends, I'm sure you never truly left them and you are by your children's side every minute of every day, giving them the kind of advice only a Dad can. You will never be forgotten by them, nor are you forgotten by a grateful America. You are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

"The Badge"

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.

Scott. I met your parents today and all I can say is, they love you. I wish I could have met you, so I could have my own personal opinion of you. "I know it would be great"
As your parents spoke about you today, I feel like I know you. All I ask is that you bless them and look over them because they truely love you. I can say I am here to help them. THEY LEFT AN IMPRESSION ON ME.

It has been almost seven years and I did not forget. I regret leaving the service but I do not regret meeting. It was like yesterday that I saw you. You were passionate in your work and the Buffalo Sabers. Yes, I was young and immature at the time but that did not stop me from noticing why you wanted me to succeed in life. I am married now and have three children. I noticed that Kelsey added a reflection, wow, I remember you as well. You were four years old at the time. And your little brother who was merely a baby. Thank you Scott for believing in and helping me realize how important the Coast Guard really was. I kept your flag on the 22 footer that capsized. I have it framed on my wall just to remind me of that day. It has inspired me to join a law enforcement career maybe even consider joining the Border Patrol. Semper Paratus.
