Trev- you were fearless, and a good friend. Thanks for teaching me how to shoot my rifle and keeping me squared away in the Academy. I will always remember you.

I did not know Trevor personally. I heard of his passing on the news when it first happend. I too lost my husband in 2004 from medical issues. He was only 28. Heres the ironic thing.... Trevor is buried just a few graves away from my husband. I know this because just a few days after Trevors burial I casually walked over to be nosey and see all the beautiful flowers. I immediatley realized he was the policeman from tv! I even noticed that you guys left him a plate for Thanksgiving. My heart just broke when I saw that. My kids were very young when I lost my husband- 6, 3 and 1. Although its been a few years already..... may your family forever have peace. xoxo

Dear Mr. James,

Thank you for your kind words about my son. I just came across your post today. I'd like to think that as I read this, Trevor was watching over me, as he has ever since the night he was defending myself, his wife and his beautiful children. It's wonderful to hear stories from those who knew him.

I just found out about Trevor from a friend's post of Facebook concerning one of the individuals that killed Trevor. We worked and travelled together while stationed in D.C. I used to get e-mails from Trevor while I was deployed over seas in the Navy. Most of the time they were jokes, or something amusing, that would make me laugh or smile and were always appreciated. When they quit coming, I thought it was just because things got too busy with work/family, or other things took precedence. I read through many of the posts others have left and it's obvious that he never changed. When Trevor joined the Marines, he selflessly put the well-being of others before his own and put himself in harms way to protect those that could not do so for theirself. Along the way, he passed his knowledge, training, and values down to those he was responsible for and enabled them to do their job with the utmost readiness and professionalism. It's no wonder that he would trade in one uniform for another that allowed him to continue on with the same values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment, that he learned in the United States Marine Corp. It's no wonder that he still wore a uniform that put the well being of others before his own. And it's no wonder he still put himself in harms way between those that would do harm and those that could not protect their self. Trevor will continue to be an inspiration and a hero to me. I will always be indebted for the sacrifices he, and his family, endured, as a Marine and as a policeman, that allow me to live my life today. To his family and friends, words can not reflect how sorry I am for your loss. Trevor was a great person, Marine, and friend. I would appreciate if someone would read this to him for me.

T,

It's hard to believe it's been three years without hearing from you and wishing that I can just be able to pick up the phone and hear your voice and tell you all that is going on right now I got so much to tell you, but that's gonna have to wait until I see you on the other side. Tomorrow's your birthday and I got the Coronas on ice for a toast. Keep the high ground and take care my brother.

Trevor,

You will be truly missed. We graduated the academy together and shared some awesome and exciting times working together. You will never be forgotten brother.

Trevor was a great, great man. A nicer guy you will never meet. I often ran into him during our shifts. Since we were both Marines we spoke often about it. I think of him almost everyday. He will live in my mine forever.

Staff Sergeant, you trained us hard in the Corps, it wasn't always appreciated but it prepared us to fight, to win. In two days I will become a police officer as well. You taught me how to shoot a pistol, I shot the class high. I will never stop training hard, I will never back down, I will never forget. Thank you.

Remembering you on this, the first anniversary of your passing, and praying that God will comfort those you left behind. This is the first of many anniversaries they will have to spend without you, and although it never gets easier, they are never alone. I pray especially for your children, that they grow to know their daddy was a hero and will forever be remembered for his service, dedication and sacrifice. Thank you, Officer Nettleton.

When I got to Kilo in Sept of 2001 as a new PFC, we all anticipated heading off to war, but it was too early to know where. Trevor was one of our loudest Sgts, and kept at his work, sharpening us like a knife, for the coming battles. On duty or off, he was never easy on us, and a lot of us hated him for it. Trevor was good at his job, though, and made the best Marines he could. He gruffly taught everything he could to anyone who needed it, and I remember him adjusting the trajectory on my M203 on a range on the Big Island at PTA. Later that week, he would throw himself on top of another Marine when that Marine bounced a grenade wrong in a trench, saving them both from shrapnel during a trench clearing training exercise. I am certain many of the Marines he taught survived the coming war, or at least gave a sterling accounting of themselves before they fell, in no small part due to his example and instruction.
I remember Trevor and Sgt. Schulze hanging out a lot on libo, and they were quite the odd couple, as Sgt Schulze was so soft spoken, kind, and gentle (shouting came awkwardly out of his throat, as if it bumped into one side, and staggered a bit because of it) while Trevor was always yelling at someone, ever the hard-ass, making sure everyone kept their gear tight, even on libo. Once in Korea, Trevor made the mistake of trying to pull rank in a bar about something, and Cpl. Wasche (soon to be my squad leader) gave him two black eyes before throwing him over his shoulder and carrying him home.
When I heard Trevor had been killed, I was enraged, feeling perhaps that none of us who survived our service during the war were destined to survive peace. The more I read about the incident and Trevor, the more I saw we had in common. We both graduated HS in 1997 and were about the same age, both married with two small children. When Trevor was killed, I was in my first semester of Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement, and I'm still working toward becoming a cop.

Trevor, somehow you were always there before me.

See you in Valhalla, brother...

I grew up playing baseball with Trevor. I had no idea our lives would take similar paths into law enforcement. What happened is Terrible and Sad. Trevor, I wish I had known you better.
