Being the first recorded CHP Motorman to lose his life I thought it was fitting to say Thank you for your service to both the United States of America in WWI as well as the future California Highway Patrol. Being a former CHP motorman I understand your love for the Motor. You belong to the finest Motor squad this country has ever known. God Bless you Traffic Officer Alvitre. Guard the heavens until we all meet.

My father often talked about Officer Alvitre. All the young men around the area looked up to him. My father eventually became a motorcycle officer with the Salinas Police Department achieving the rank of Captain before an early retirement to pursue another career.
