Reflections for Police Officer Craig Allen Birkholz

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out".

Not one day goes by without thinking of you and missing you. It is so hard to believe that soon it will be five years. It often feels as if my world has stood still since that day. Love you, miss you.

Honoring all our Veterans on Veterans Day. The 511th MP CO. Thinking of how you made it back from Afghanistan and Iraq. How you surprised me one Christmas home for a week leave from Iraq. Missing you! Missing our hero. Not a day goes by I don't think of you. Love you always

I'm a Birkoltz, have quite a bit of extended military family, and an inactive sworn Corrections officer that has experience with sensory overload, the dangers of it, this just made me ill, my prayers and hope in fidelity to the family.

In hope, prayer, and honor that your memory and legacy continue.

Craig, its been awhile since you have given your life protection the citizens of Fon Du Lac. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and the time I used to hang out with Paul. Your father-in-law talk about you all the time, and about our time in Iraq. God has felt you have done your time in hell and took you home to protect heaven! You are missed deeply and I love you brother! RIP forever.

Son, there is not a day that has gone by that your brother, dad or I don't think of you or that something pops up that reminds us of you. Our hearts, it seems, will forever be missing a piece. Our lives forever changed. Always loved, forever will be missed.

Brother it seems like just a few days ago that we were sitting in folding chairs in Mosul. There are so many more things I would have loved to talk to you about. I think about you every day and only hope that I am have the man and officer that you were. I know that you are watching over us all now, and that is the only comfort I have. I still have your picture on my wall at work and I often catch myself just looking at it and thinking back to our days in Iraq and Fort Drum. You are truly one of the good ones. I hope to make it to WI this spring to visit you. Thank you for being my friend, my battle buddy, and my hero. Rest at ease my friend, we have it covered down here.
