Remembering this fine officer, James Camp, today, the anniversary of his death in the line of duty. May you continue to rest in heavenly peace, and God bless your wife, who surely missed you terribly. And safety to all the men and women on the thin blue line. Our prayers are with you all!

Officer Camp,

From one Marine to another, Semper Fi. May GOD Bless you, your family, and your friends.

We lost another Marine to gunfire on January 6, 2005. My best friend Columbus, OH Police Officer Bryan Hurst.

You are not forgotten.

I can't believe justice was not served in your case, but at least this person is behind bars for many years.

Semper Fi,

~~~ Living My Life Without You ~~~

Living my life without you, tell me what am I going to do?
Some days I feel like screaming --- tell me, am I still dreaming?

Living my life without you, tell me why am I so blue?
Some days life seems so unfair --- tell me, does anyone really care?

Living my life without you, tell me do you miss me too?
Some days I’d like to fly away --- tell me, what is heaven like each day?

James, I finally had the sentencing yesterday 10-20-04 for the suspect that disarmed my partner and tried to kill us both. He got 24 years 6 months and has to do 11 years 6 months before he is eligible for parole. The incident took place on 02-09-03 just 30 days short of the 4 year anniversary of your death. I was able to read in a victim impact statement. In the statement I told the court about your death and educated the judge about how your death affected me and a lot of your friends. It made a big impact and the Judge used my statement in his final decision not to allow the suspect to have a lighter sentence. Your sacrifice is not in vain, your are still helping your brothers. When I work one man I make sure the seat is empty so you can ride with me again. I am on the list to get promoted to Sergeant here. I think of you often. I miss you buddy. Rob and I often talk about you remember the good times and what a gentle giant your were. Thanks for being there for me when I need you. Your brother Jim

Hi James,

I never met you but I have since met your wife Opal through my niece Shawn Lee, widow of Officer Eric D. Lee. I just want to say that regardless of the verdict - you are our hero. We know you did what you did according to the book and it is so unfortunate that justice took a swing to the left in your case.

I look forward to meeting you when the time comes. Until then - keep watching over Opal. She is your Earth Angel.

He was a quiet man who loved his God, his family, and his job. He will be missed by all who worked with him, and those of us who knew him. Rest in peace knowing that we think of you.

James,

You're looking over us and hanging out with your brother in blue as I am down here looking after your angel. There isn't a day that goes by we don't talk and try to keep one another on solid ground. She loves you more than words can ever express and only you will have her heart completely.

Rest Soldier...an outstanding job you've done here!

To Mrs. James Camp. I saw you the morning of Officer Camp's visitation sitting alone in the first pew. I did not know what to say to you. I grabbed your hands and said, "May GOD bless you." I will say to you again, May GOD bless you. I will keep you and your family lifted in prayer.

Sweetie there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about you and what could have been. Thank you for spending those three glorious months with me as your wife. I miss you so much my gentle giant.

I attended your funeral and it was a very solemn and awesome service. You would've been proud of the outpouring from officers all over the area. As I stared at your casket, I was reminded of what God says about you and law enforcement officers all over:


"For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."


You were God's minister for Good! I'm sure you will be resurrected to a fine position in the Kingdom.


Rest in Peace!

I still remember how nice you were when I got out of the Marine Corps and came to work at Intercon. You were my immediate supervisor and you took me under your wing. You knew I wasn't from the Chicago Area and you looked after me. My first day at the Brick Yard you made me feel like your brother, and I still feel that way. Bob called me the night you got shot and we both tried to understand, I still don't. I carried your death notice with your picture for the complete first year I was on the job here. Thank you for being there for me, I wish I could have been there for you man. At your funeral they played the Marine Hymn with the bad pipes and another Marine yelled out a loud OOHRAH, I couldn’t talk at that point but it made me feel good. I know I will see you again, Semper Fi Buddy. I miss you man. Jim

We've been thinking about you today...rest in peace, my brother

Ofc Camp, just to let ya know, that punk that killed you, was just acquitted today although he was found guilty of Auto Theft and Disarming you. This "low life" deserves the death penalty instead of 30 or less years.

OFFICER,MARINE,HERO. WE WILL NEVER
FORGET YOU. GOD BLESS YOU.

I knew you as Corporal Camp. I served with you at 3rd MEF, and you were the first friendly face I met at Subic Bay. Thanks for the jokes and the advice. You will always be remembered as a warrior and a leader.

I had not seen James since high school, and didn't even know he was an officer. I found out he was that day he was killed. We were not the closest of friends. He was the popular athlete, I was the shy one. However, he would always take time to say hello and make you laugh. There were many times since high school that I would think of things he had done and I would just start to laugh. We were so different, but ultimately, the same. I'm an officer, too.
