"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

The heroic nature in which CPO Horne died highlights the dangers our Coast Guard members face every day. From what I have read about this tragic case, it is clear to me that Chief Horne died the way he lived: fearlessly and doing the right thing. God bless.

Chief Petty Officer Horne, Thank you for your service to our country. Rest well in the presence of the Lord.

To Your Family:

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with loving, caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name, Amen”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for 21 months. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

Everyday our armed forces go into harm's way as Chief Horne did on this day. I weep for his widow and children and the loss experienced by his family.

Lines found in sentry box in Gibraltar, and included in a poem by Thomas Jordan which I have carried with me for 34 years:

God and Soldier all men adore,
In time of trouble and no more;
For when War is over and all things righted,
God is neglected - the old solider slighted.

The drug War goes on and the U.S.Coast Guard will always on the frontline. Remember him and those before him always because each was and still is out are out there to protect us.

Our nation has the obligation to tend to those that are left behind.
