Reflections for Private Julian F. Arnold

Its been 134 years since your passing. There are more LEO's killed in the Line of Duty today then ever. I'm hoping there is a special place in Heaven that you all may gather at and Rest In Peace. Thank you for serving our country and our community. Over the 134 years, your children, grandchildren, great grand children and great great grandchildren followed your footsteps and served in the military, LEO or Fire dept. I'm sorry we can no longer keep an American Flag on your grave as certain people in the community do not like the fact that you were one of Stonewall Jackson's Men. As stated on your grave stone. They take the flags and break it off and stick it in the ground upside down. RIP

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty-second 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. Rest In Peace.

How wonderful that your legacy of protecting and serving still carries on through your descendants.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
