Reflections for Trooper John Henry Duncan, Jr.


I don't know why but I thought about you today. I miss you man, the days on the road, in the gym, and the nights just talking. You were truely one of the good guys on the patrol and I truely loved working with you.

I remember that day so vividly but what I remembered the most was your little boy standing in the window when I arrived to give Kim the bad news. That day is etched in my mind forever and I would love to meet the little guy in that window again. I'm sure he has grown to be a fine young man.

John.. Too many words to say but we do miss you.. Your son Johnny will be turning 20 years old next month.. I know that you see him and are so proud of him as well as I am. Johnny does think of you often and misses you and wished that you were here to share with his successes. He is still making his Daddy proud. We will always keep you in our hearts.

LiL Johnny, it seem like yesterday we were riding bikes in Eastabuchie and getting in trouble for doing something wrong! Remember those days of..... baseball, swimming at the river and chasing girls! Think about you all the time when i put that uniform on and get in that patrol car. Its not the same man. SEE YA ON THE OTHER SIDE BROTHA.....

John, or Johnny as we called you, I can still remember how we talked about being pilots when we were kids. How we watched Top Gun like 1000 times, Lol! Or the time you came home and took your car down the drag strip here in Hattiesburg. I sure do miss you, my cousin, and I think about you often. ESPECIALLY when I see a State Trooper, even if it is MHP! You may be gone but you will NEVER be forgotten. Until we meet again....

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 11th 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. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

So much has changed my brother since you have gone. I miss our talks, laughs, council sessions and your presence. I rember like it was yesterday, sitting in the passenger seat of your patrol car talking about working out at the gym ...the next day you were gone. I miss you and think of you often. I so wish you were here, I miss my friend so much...R.I.P. my brother.

wow, i honestly can't believe this january made it 10 years since you've been gone. i know the phrase "it seems like yesterday" is over-used, but it really does seem like just yesterday you left us. i can't even begin to describe how much i still miss you. your goofiness, your smile. you always knew how to make me laugh. at the time i didn't realize the sacrifices you made to make all of us proud, but now that i do, i can't thank you enough. you were so good to me even though i wasn't your own and i can honestly say you were my bestfriend. justin has grown up to be just like you. he has your smile and your sense of humor. even though he tends to have a smart mouth, he is always quickly reminded of the butt whooping he would get if his dad was here. i can't wait to see who he becomes and i pray that he grows to be just as much of a man as you were.
john, not a day goes by that you aren't remembered & from time to time i find myself laughing at memories that i still have of your time with us. i can't wait to see your smile again one day. love you forever.

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

"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.

Even years after your crash, your death still haunts me. I think about you often. In fact, every day I start my Patrol Car I see your name on the broken memorial braclet that is not attached to my low band mic.

I'll never forget the look we gave each other on the very fist day of Patrol School when they were running us around the track. It summed up the next 28 weeks.

And the 45 of us left will never, ever forget your camel named Clyde. The one with two humps; the one you used to ride.

To the 99th...

Man, it's been so many years since you have been gone. Looking at your pictures and all the nice things said about you brings back so many memories. I can remember all of us having fun back here in Mississippi. I love you and miss you. I'll keep your memory alive in my heart always.

Today is August 23, 2006 and I came across the memorial from a link on another page. As I have sat and read this almost entire pages of the fallen troopers it saddens me greatly. I have known many troopers and applied many times to the great NCSHP. I have very poor eyesight and therefore could not be accepted. I greatly admire and have the utmost respect for the patrol. I have lived the life of a trooper through many great friends who are troopers. I always try and make sure when I see a trooper on a traffic stop to make sure he is ok. Without hesitation I would risk being injured to assist. To all the familys of these fine troopers. God be with you all.
