Reflections for Special Agent Harrison Dean Pulliam

27 years ago, you gave your last full measure of devotion for us & our country. I had the blessing & privilege of working with you when you were stationed at Fairchild AFB. I will not forget you, your widow and children. Thank you, Harrison, and we know you & our loving God are looking out for your widow and children.

Hey Uncle,
The stories of your deeds had always been something I looked up to growing up. I was just shy of 5 when you passed, but just wish we could have met when I was older.

Mrs. Sheila Pulliam, Miss Kaitlyn Pulliam & family,

As the senior civilian supervisor in the Spokane Police Dept.- County Sheriff Records Section,
I had the blessing and privilege of occasionally providing services to your husband ~ father,
and sometimes asking his help when military connections intersected with civilian law
enforcement. I always received excellent service from all the military branches whenever
I called upon them for help. Your husband ~ father was outstanding even among these
superb people. He went above and beyond whenever he responded to my requests for
assistance with his characteristic quiet humility. So much so, that after my last interaction with him,
I wrote a letter of thanks and commendation, with the Police Chief’s signature, to his Air Force
superiors at Fairchild and OSI headquarters.

I didn’t learn of his passing until a few years later and, as all of us, was deeply saddened
to learn of it. Through these many years I’ve not forgotten Dean and when appropriate
have told others of him and his service and sacrifices for our country. I was telling a retired
Spokane Sheriff Deputy Sergeant about Dean this morning and afterwards looked Dean up
on the Internet and found this site that provides the opportunity to tell you about my experiences
with him and, as you know, what a good man he was.

My faith is Dean continues loving you, watching over you and, with God, doing all he can to
help you with all the graces you need to be healthy and happy until you meet again in Heaven.

Mr. Pulliam,

I was stunned the day one of the agents at Det 322, Fairchild, called to tell me he had "very tragic news." I was a brand new agent under your command, and I know you volunteered for that duty in order to give your very best to the Command and your family. I just read your daughter's message to you and am heartbroken as I write this more than 23 years after your EOW. I look forward to getting caught up with you again one day sir. I believe the following scripture applies to you:

Isaiah 6:8, “And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

Dean...I was one of the guys that hung out with you on the chapel porch playing guitar...I can’t thank you and your family enough for your sacrifice. You made a life long impact on me and sending you home as we did was the saddest moment of my career. I pray your family knows how much we all thank you for protecting us outside the wire.

Dean was my deputy at AFOSI Detachment 1040, Randolph AFB from 1985-87. Dean was an absolutely super guy and I never had to worry when he held the ticket to a necessary task. He always got it done. I was already two years retired when Dean left us. I never knew. Cindy Roa told me today. I was a 9Q in AFOSI and went back into that world after being DetCo. Your photo here brought me back, Dean. Catch up with you in the next, better world.

Dean. It's been nearly 14 years since you left us. We all had some great times working together in Spokane. I especially remember our last conversation in Germany at the air terminal when we wished each other a safe journey as we parted our ways to go back into our respective countries we were conducting operations in at the time. I think of you often boss and know that you're watching over your family and all of us here. Until we meet again one day my friend.

RIP brother Harrison.

My God bless and watch over your family always.

I arrived in Kuwait in 98 to start my remote tour. As the permanent party First Sergeant assigned to Camp Doha and then Al Jaber I was made aware of your death and how you celebrated and lived life to the fullest while stationed there. When I passed your photo and plaque in the headquarters building I could only imagine the pain and sorrow of family, co-workers and friends. For we who were permanent party were a tight knit group and unfortunately I know the sting of death of a friend and its traumatic effects. Words can never express my gratitude for your service to our country nor the sorrow I feel for your family.

Until we are called to that final PCS: "Un Ab Alto"

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 12th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to our country. 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. Your paths may have crossed as he was deployed to Kuwait at about the same time as a Marine Captain who commanded a tanker unit.

To Kaitlyn, her mom and Kel: I hope you are following your dreams and leading the lives your husband and father wishes for you. You are all in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace.

"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 there was some good that came from your father's death. When conducting off base missions from Al Jaber, we were now more focused and aware of out surroundings perhaps a bit more. Because of your dad, I completed my time in Kuwait, and returned home to my daughter, who at the time wasn't two. I'm sure he looks down on you and continues to guide you and make you stronger.

It's been eight years dad, and I miss you everyday. I'm doing my best without you but it's just so hard. I looked up to you. I'm at HCHS because I know you'd want me to try my hardest and push me to do my best. I remember saying for so long that I don't know what to do without you, but I've somewhat figured it out. Try my hardest to make you proud as if you were still here. Me, mom, and kel miss you and wish you wouldn't of stayed those extra months.
Love Kaitlyn

Brother Pulliam,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue

The day you died was a hard day for all of us that were with you in Kuwait. We were a good team and you were a good boss. I still miss you and think of you often. God Bless.
