In tracing family history, I find my first cousin Officer Benjamin J. "BJ" Carroll was following in the footsteps of many who dedicate their lives to protect and serve us. It is with sadness that I discover this information, but proud to know he too, along with several others in our family, fought the good fight and served with distinction and pride. I regret he only got to serve for a mere six months before being taken away from a young family.

He was my grandmother's brother who served his county very well . He left behind some loving family behind when he was killed. It can never be over come nor forgotten in our family on how or why he was killed. He will be loved always. You are our hero , Uncle BJ.
