Rest in peace Detective Wilcox. Exactly on that date in 1980 did my father a retired New York City officer pass away after an illness.

"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.

Detective Wilcox,

I wanted you to know that you will always be with me and in my prayers. As a member of the Police Unity Tour I rode a bicycle from Virginia to Washington in your honor and memory. As I escorted the survivors of other heroes to their seats I watched patiently for your family. I began to think it would be impossible to find them.

I believe it was you that focused my eyes to see your last name on their name tags. The ceremony had already started so it was difficult to speak with them, but I quickly explained what I had done. I gave them a piece of me with a bracelet that I wore while riding. I hope they know that I would welcome further contact with them. I would love to hear more about you from them.

Thank you for your assistance in finding them and for the wonderful life you led. May God keep you close and protect your family until once again you are reunited.

Bless you brother,
David
