Reflections for Keeper Samuel Calvert

Keeper Calvert,
On today, the 144th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served in the Union Army during the Civil War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I said a little prayer today for Keeper Calvert and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

Since your passing, twenty two men in the family have become Lawmen and of that, five have followed in your path,myself included. Three for the City Correction Dept. Two of us, like You For the State and although the city has much changed since your time and the place where you kept watch is long gone,Not a year has gone by where a glass was not raised in your memory, here and in the old country. Walk your rounds in Heaven as we will walk ours down here, Slainte.

Keeper Calvert,

I am so thankful we have the ability for many of us who did not know you to honor your memory and thank you for your service. It is shameful that there was no real justice in your murder. I am honored as a citizen to know that there are amazing men and women who put their lives on the line to protect me and those I love. Thank you for you courage and sacrifice.

Keeper Calvert,
Sir, it has taken over 140 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of New York. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer. It angers me that your murderer only received a 1 year sentence and for manslaughter at that.
