Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Detective Vicky Anne Owen Armel

Thinking of you and Mike this week. Never forget...

Sister Armel your story touched me so deeply when I was in the academy and still Today. This morning while I was reflecting on Gods Loving Word, the Most High reminded me of your sacrifice and how so similar it was to the Ultimate sacrifice our Lord Jesus performed for the world to see and Behold! Even now at this moment I type with tears falling down my face with Joy knowing that "We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. So, Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service."
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!! See You Soon Sister Armel!

My Sophmore daughter was tasked a school assignment/paper on "sacrifice" and "character" and came to me for ideas. I had the distinct honor of speaking about you and Mike this evening at the kitchen table with her at length. Forever in my heart.

It's been nearly nine years since this tragic event, but I often think of the officers killed that that day and the officers that continue to put their lines on the line for my safety. So, this is a reflection simply to say, "Thank you." I have no rank in the police department. I'm simply one of the many Fairfax County residents you officers protect everyday.

Vicky, I was thinking about you recently and how much fun we used to have working together.

From the bible studies at Reston to your amazing peace and strength through the end, "you finished the race" as a faithful servant. Thanks for being a friend and sister in Christ. I miss you.

Hi Vicky, I rode for you during the 2007 Police Unity Tour. I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that I was thinking of you and your family. Now in the DB, I will hang my Unity Tour jacket with your patch at my desk. I will never forget your ultimate sacrifice. I hope that your family is well. Rest in peace Sister.

Detective Armel,
I was born and raised in Fairfax County and continued to work there until I left the area at the end of 2006. I am now a police officer in Pennsylvania but I still remember that awful day in Chantilly. I thought about May 8th, 2006 many times during those endless police aptitude tests, oral interviews, and those long days at the police academy. Though I never met you, I mean it when I say that you make me proud to be a police officer. You made every cop proud on that sad day. Rest in peace Sister, we've got the watch from here.
