Chuck,
Once again another year has passed. It is hard to believe that today makes 14 years since you were taken from everyone. You are not forgotten. Godspeed 722!

Happy Thanksgiving Chuck!!
It's hard to believe it's been 12 years today that you gave your all. You would have been on 22 years and maybe even retired by now. I know you are missed by many and are not forgotten. Godspeed 722!!

Although I never had the privilege of knowing Capt. Chuck Morgan personally, I did have the honor of researching his career as a Jessamie County Sherriff, as part of my assigned project at he DOCJT training program for 911 Telecommunicators. I am also fortunate enough to work with his Fiance - Robin, and much of the information in my report is a result of my interview with Robin for this project.It is obvious that Capt. Morgan made an everlasting impression on the community he served, his professional family of law enforcement, and his personal friends and family members. Capt. Morgan was described as an Ofificers officer, his position as a Jessamine County Sheriff Dept Deputy wa of utmost importance to him. He lived to do his job well and to do his job to the very best of his ability- always handling himself in a professional manner and always presenting himself physically in a very professional manner. Capt. Chuck Morgan died doing what he loved to do best, and Jessammine County and anyone who had contact with him was certainly better off because of their contact with Capt.Chuck Morgan. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been affected by the loss of this amazing man.

I was just cleaning out my desk drawer and came upon a business card that Captain Morgan had given me years ago.

In Feb 2001, my son was involved in a fatal car accident in which the victim's car had spun out of control on a wet road, colliding with my son's car. That driver succumbed; my son survived with mouth injuries. A few days after, I spoke with Captain Morgan about the particulars of the accident.

Afterward, I recall being particularly impressed with Captain Morgan for his professionalism as a Sheriff's deputy and his personal empathy for me, a concerned father.

I remember best a comment that he said: "You can be proud of your son at the accident scene. Even though he was hurt, he was very cool headed and out of his car trying to help the other driver."

Chuck did not have to tell me that; it was more than the "facts" of the event. But it helped tremendously to set this father's heart at peace to know that his son had done well as a man.

Captain Morgan was more than a good Sheriff's Deputy -- he was a good man and I will forever be grateful for the kindness he showed me and my son on that day.

In 2001, I was so sad to hear of his tragic death in the line of duty. And here in 2012, I am still grateful that this good man once touched my life. His family can truly be proud of him. May God's richest blessing rest on them and the memory of Captain Chuck Morgan -- hero.

722,

It's been many years since that tragic morning... Still it seems just like yesterday. You were there anytime we called you, no matter what time it was, day or night... usually around 3 am, but you still came out. Thank you for your service to the Sheriff's Office and to Jessamine County.

Miss you Chuck. We had some really good times and locked up a lot of bad guys while working the night shift back in the day. Most of those officers are retired now or moved on to other things. I tell some stories from time to time to keep the memory alive, but I seriously doubt you will be forgotten as there are still a lot of tales to be told.

Rest easy 722

"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.

Capt.

For all the hard times we gave you, I do apologize. I am starting to see things a little differently now. I just hope we can help the young guys, and you and Billy will be with us all. We miss you and Billy, I look at your pictures daily, and I go right back to that day and that shack. If only the young guys realized. Hopefully you can give them a little motivation like you used to do with us.

Hey Captain,

Just doesn't seem right that so much time has passed. I was telling someone the other day about you and your favorite t shirt with Kenny Bernstein on it. I guess I had seen you wear that at least a hundered times.
I see your brothers every so often. They are doing good. You were always fair to us. I miss that alot. See you on the other side old man.

Thinking about you today, five years, still hard to beleive. We miss you so much and think of you daily. James and I find ourselves talking about you often. The kids are doing wonderful. Ty is in 1st grade and just loves it. Morgan is in pre-school. She thinks she is in big school. She is so beautiful. I wish you had the chance to meet her she would of held your heart in her hand. Kinda like Ty did. It makes me sad to know that my kids are missing out on getting to know a such wonderful man. You were such a great Unkie. Ty loved you so much and he still does. He tells Morgan that she was named after you. He is such a pickle, just like James. He even walks like James and has the ability to build anything. I'm sure you are watching and enjoying every minute. I haven't talked to Robin in a long time. I hope she is doing well. Wrap your arms around her this Holiday Season and give her some strength. Let her know she is not alone. We miss you very much, continue to watch over us all.

Hey Chuck I just wanted to say that you are not forgotten and that you are loved.

October 13, 2006

It will soon be 5 years that your tour of duty ended and you are missed every day by those that love you. Their lives have been changed forever with your loss. You have not been forgotten nor will that ever be the case as your loved ones will keep your memory alive and so will the Blue Family. You are a true hero and heroes never die. Keep watch over your loved ones, wrap your wings around them and protect them and also those still out on patrol.
