Reflections for Trooper James A. Moen

Jim and I served in the army together, he was the very best commander we had, we became friends and I too found fulfillment in a law enforcement career after military service. Jim and Ann are always close to my heart even after 39 years have passed, I smile at the memory’s of shared service in Germany with Jim and Ann.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 11th anniversary year 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.

I pray for solace for all those that call you beloved for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I thank them for sharing their memories of you through their reflections.

Like my brother who has written right below me, I did not have the honor of knowing you, but based on your years of service I'm sure you knew my father Swack. Both of you have the distinction of leaving this earth doing what you both loved doing best: flying for the Alaska State Troopers. Like a flaming Phoenix you both went down, but were reborn into a different and better world. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Trooper Moen,
On today, the 8th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served in the U.S. Armed Forces. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Hi Jim. I appreciate your patience, sense of humor, and good-natured attitude. Those can be hard qualities to come by among those in law enforcement. I am grateful to have known you. Thanks Jim. Chris

"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.

I lived across the street from the Moens when I was a kid in Eagle River and I played with Jim's kids nearly every day. We moved away when I was 8, but I often thought about my childhood friends and it saddened me greatly to hear of Jim's passing. He was always so kind, and I always remembered his smile. I have often thought of his wife and children and I pray that they are doing well. RIP Jim Moen
