Reflections for Special Agent Daniel Joseph Kuhlmeier

I had the honor of serving with Dan in Cuba. It was clear from the first time I met him that he would move on to greater things. He was a true leader from a young age and accomplished much in his short life.

Dan you were always quiet. But your actions always showed me you were meant to be a leader. As young men you always stuck up for the little guy. You were always my friend. It wasn't till you were my roommate in Hawaii did i realize how much you were loved by others because you showed the characteristics of a young man who made sure all your friends were protected. And it was you who made sure we were okay. I miss you big Dan.

Remembering you and your family today on Veteran's Day. Saying a mere thank you is inadequate for your sacrifice. We will never forget.

I served in Bonn Germany as an Embassy Marine with Dan back in 1996. Dan was the highest caliber of Marine, he was a strong leader and a fine young man. This Memorial Day (2013) I remember him, and the sacrifice of his family. I am eternally grateful for his service and his sacrifice. My family and I will always remember Dan, his memory will always be kept and honored. Semper Fidelis, Former Staff Sergeant of Marines, Kevin Chavez, USMC

'Lo, there do I see my father. 'Lo, there do I see...
My mother, and my sisters, and my brothers.
'Lo, there do I see...
The line of my people...
Back to the beginning.
'Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them.
In the halls of Valhalla...
Where the brave...
May live...forever.

We will never forget you Dan

Hi Dan,

I was just sitting here tonight and you kind of popped into my mind. You really helped me through a rough patch and shone through as a mentor for us all early in our careers. I don't know if you realised the positive impact you had on those around you. You inspired me to be a better person and agent.

I miss you brother,

POLICE OFFICER
PHILA PA

"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.
