We served together and I knew we had each others back no matter what! 20 years ago today I lost my little brother Ski and it still feels like it was yesterday. I miss you brother and I'm so sorry that I wasn't able to be there with you! God please bless James and let him rest in peace. Love you Brother!!!

Always in my heart always on my mind gone but never forgotten I love you and miss you my brother.. All of these Brave individuals who layed their lives down for us to protect us and the America they believed in deserve more than just a day more than just a long weekend they deserve to be kept in our hearts and thoughts throughout the year forever! Take a moment and think about what it really means for someone to give up their life, their tomorrow their everything for us & our freedom. God bless everyone of them and their families who have to spend every day without them.. Thank you to all who have served and thank you to all who have lost a loved one serving <3

It’s been 19 years and I still think of you I miss you so much it physically hurts. The tears still come in waves and some days the waves feel like they’re going to swallow me whole. I miss seeing you sitting on my steps waiting for me when I got home. I miss visiting you at work and trying to step on your “shiny” shoes. I miss your voice, your smile, your jokes, your laugh and most of all...your hugs. I miss seeing how much it made you smile to help others. My favorite memory will always be the day we met. I think we sat in that parking lot for hours....and even then we didn’t want to leave! Who knew I would meet someone that I would love so much at a CPR class. I miss you and pray for the day I can see you again. My heart has never healed

Ten years. Wow. My kids were only 4 & 6? It just doesn't seem that long ago. I feel sorry for anyone who never had the chance to spend time with you. They will never know what a little stinker you could be pulling a prank, or what a sweet loving gentle guy you always were to everyone you loved.
Even with people you weren't fond of, I never heard you be anything less than a gentleman. Losing you sucked then, not having you now hasn't gotten much better. Know that you were - and still are - loved by so many and will never be forgotten.

It is hard to believe it has been 10 years.

James is thought of often and we make sure to mention him and his sacrifice each Memorial Day Sunday at our church. The Sakofsky Family continues to be in our prayers.

James, we give thanks for men and women who like you have been so willing to serve our nation. We owe you more than words can express.

It's crazy that it has been ten years today.... Words can't describe how much you are missed. I am so glad that the memories I have of you are embedded in my brain. Even though each day we mourn the fact that you aren't physically in our lives we still are grateful that you live in our hearts. You still speak through out actions and your love shows in all that we do. You helped instill greatness into so many people and you will live with each of us until we are able to meet you again. I love you uncle James!

Ten years feels like yesterday. You are missed every day by us all. What a blessing you brought to all of our lives. We are all better for having you in our lives.

It's hard to believe it's been ten years since we lost you - it still feels like yesterday. Visiting you today was different for the boys; they've grown up so much and I know you're watching over them. It was nice to see that other friends had been there, too. We miss you and love you. Love, your big sis

Uncle James,

I miss you everyday, and even though it has been over nine years it doesn't get any easier to talk about you. Although I think of you everyday, today is special because it is Veterans day. I never had my chance to thank you not only for your contributions to this country but also for your impact on my life. You and Aunt Wendy not knowingly instilled in me the desire to do more, to be like the two of you and go that extra mile for our country. Your selflessness is something that I strive everyday to achieve. It has been almost 2 years since I joined the Air Force and I can only hope that the day will come where I can do my part, just as you did. I love you Uncle James and I miss you more and more everyday.

Happy Birthday, son. I think of you every day, but esecially this day. I will always be so proud to be your mom. We all miss you so much.

For Corporal James Thomas Sakofsky, US Army-MP:

Duty as a military police officer is doubly hazardous.The MP proceeds both as a defender of those in uniform and as defender of our country. The obligation of the MP is complex as it relates to civilians - who hardly know even the civilian law officer's difficult job. The military police officer, who is active and engaged in battle, and far away, is mostly understood only by those who have been there. The MP stands a breed apart - for he or she is of the troops and for the troops.

We pray for Jim's family, friends, fellow-soldiers and all who care about him. May they, till this day, be ready to reach-out to one another.

As both a retired US Army military police first-sergeant, of the active military, and reserve military police, and as a retired state trooper, I am proud to remember Corporal Thomas Sakofsky with a crisp and final salute.

I can't believe its been 9 years- still seems like yesterday. You are always in my heart and thoughts. I love you.
