Senior Trooper K.E. Flynt,

I just got home after a midnight shift in Troop G, New Years Eve heading into 2013. To the family of trooper Flynt, my father attended the FHP academy with him. My family's thoughts, respect, and prayers go out to all of you. Our fathers served together. Troopers are told that we are on duty 24 hours a day and are subject to any type of call-out. Trooper Flynt died keeping our promise.

I'll leave my home tonight to patrol my counties on the midnight shift remembering Senior Trooper Kenneth E. Flynt. When I arrive home in the morning it will be 01-01-2013.

Forgotten Sir.................No.

His Classmate, Major Robert S. Howard, passed away on 08-22-09.

Respectfully, I am.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I was around 7 years old when his life was taken. Though I never met him it has stayed with me my whole life. I still live in apollo beach where all of this happened and when I pass his house I often reflect and tell my children what a brave and honarable man he was. I will always remember that selfless act of courage as long as I live.
