Reflections for Trooper Eugene Teague

Regularly I read the stories of the troopers fallen in the line of duty... Although I live abroad I share a real interest in the memory of these heroes. By doing this I allow myself to have a thought for them, their family, their friends or colleagues... that these thoughts allow not to have forgotten the Trooper Eugene Teague - first ISP’s hero fallen under the bullets of a vile criminal.

Trooper Eugene Teague :
It is so sad that the names of John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson are so known. It is your name Trooper Eugene Teague that should be known. You are a hero and a man to be looked up to. May you rest in peace and thank you and your family for the ultimate sacrifice. WE are a better people today because you walked among us yesterday.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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 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

You were the first Indiana State Trooper to fall in the line of duty and will never be forgotten. Thank you for you sacrifice that day versus that gang of low-life scums who took your life many years too soon. Every member of the Indiana State Police hears your name as we honor our fallen comrades. Rest in peace

Our Greatest Fear
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
too many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
" Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.
