Reflections for Trooper Milton Curtis Alexander

Rest in Peace Trooper Milton Curtis Alexander. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of The Great State of Texas. You were taken too soon.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw at your murderer's carcass. May the flames of hell engulf his soul for eternity.

I was there as an assisting officer when Trooper Milton Alexander was killed in the line of duty. I often think of that day's events and wonder why such a great man and excellent trooper for this great state had to lose his life. My discussions with others since that day have shown me what a great man we lost that day and I pray for God's peace for Trooper Alexander's family and friends and for God's protective hands on all of his servants in law enforcement.

our heroism and service is honored today, the 29th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Few people have touched my life as you did. You were (and still are) one of my heros and one of the best men I have ever known. RIP Brother.

Trooper AlexanderI think of you often. I was the dispatcher on duty and talking with you before ending your watch. I'll never forget your last words over the radio - you were letting us know your location and he was ramming you. I am so sorry this had to happen - it just isn't fair. You'll always be remembered.

On October 24, 1980, you saved my life when you stopped me on IH-35 and arrested me for DWI. On October 24, 2010, I celebrated 30 years of sobriety. You are often in my thoughts and I've kept your family in my prayers. Thank you for being there at the right time and right place for me.

"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.

Please know that everytime I drive past your memorial on FM 308,I hit my siren.

Milton was my dad's best friend. Milton always looked 10 feet tall to me in that uniform. Milton still patrols. He patrols with me, every night, in my heart.
