Kris Eggle graduated from the same high school as I did in Cadillac, Michigan. At the time of his death I was working for the USDOJ in Tucson, Arizona. His death at the time affected me personally as I had to see one of the criminals who did this every day.

For the first time in many years, I will again be providing training to our cherised Law Enforcemnt Rangers of the National Park Service. Kris was a student of mine and his death, at the hands of a murderer who crossed our border with impunity, still affects me today. It is my honor commitment to Kris and his family that he is with me always and will be with me and the NPS Rangers in San Juan for their annual refresher training.

You are not forgotten...

It feels like a life time ago sense I last saw you. I was 15 when you died. I will never forget waiting for you and wondering why you were late to our Church youth group rally. I started the police academy today. I had to tell them why I wanted to be a cop. All I could think of is of what kind of great Christian man you were and what your scarifice ment to me and my community. I love you bro.

Ranger Eggle, your sacrifice is honored here, but it's your life, NOT that sacrifice that makes you a true hero.

My thanks go out to the Mexican authorities who took care of the problem. Had the suspect been caught by American authorities, the out come for him may have been outside the realm of true justice.

God Bless you Ranger and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

Just visited FLETC for the first time since our training there so many years ago. Everything seems the same except that your name is now on the wall. You had a very profound impact in my life as well as the lives of many others. Thank you Kris for all the light you shone into my life. You are still missed.

Thinking of you today - doesn't seem possible that it's been ten years. You are missed and loved.

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today and every day. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and help them with their cause that they have been involved with. It's a shame that our Country just doesn't seem to care. My son was also killed by an illegal alien and the city where he was employed had the Don't ask Don't tell philosophy. Sometimes it feels like they just don't care. They are not the ones left behind. You will never be forgotten.
