I was an MP with you in Kosovo as part of the 716th MP BN, but never had the chance to meet you in life. Your accident was tragic, but yet at the same time a wake-up call as to what could happen. May you rest in peace and know that we'll take over down here.

My brother. We served together for 2 years. I come across pictures of us on occation and remember things such as MGD and Austin Powers. I recieved news of your death and was saddend to the very depths of my heart. I still think about you after all these years and will continue to until we meet again. I photographed your headstone at ANC and keep the picture with me in my patrol car. I visit your grave everytime I get to ANC. I miss you still and can not wait to see you again my friend. May God keep you close until we meet again.

On behalf of the military police corps we would like to say " at ease soldier well done'. goodbye officer sakofsky. may you rest in peace. As a tai I see the dangers of a traffic accident and it has brought me a new respect for how and where I travel. As a mp we put at least 200 to 300 miles on the patrol cars a week 24hrs 7 days. It is a shame that a promising future for this fine soldier has been striped away,our hearts go out to his family and friends.

I wish to express my condolances to the family of MP Sakofsky. The loss of a family member while stationed overseas is extremly hard. I am currently deployed in Kosovo and I also 3 days ago almost lost my life in some of the extreme mountain terrain that we are required to drive. Your loss may save future personnel. As I will constantly remind personnel of the dangerous conditions here. Again I am sorry for your loss.

What a tragic loss. I lost an MP in 99 to a traffic accident.
This is a sad reminder that being an MP is a dangerous job in peacetime or war.

Know that all of us in the MP Corps and law enforcement share in the loss. God Bless his family and colleagues.

He now patrols the streets of heaven with St. Michael.

Carry on soldier and thanks from an old MP "top". Of the troops and for the troops!

I would like to take this time to reflect on how dangerous a MP's life can be. I myself am an MP in Maryland right now. I like to look at this from time to time, because it will bring you back to earth as to what can happen. I plan on going into civilan law enforcement when I get out of the military, and will still grieve the loss of law enforcement officers, both military and civilian.
