Reflections for Correctional Officer Colonel Gregory Guy Malloy

Colonel Malloy was a great individual. He was always approachable and very skilled at his profession. He did not deserve to go in the manner he went, but he died doing what he was committed to do, serving and protecting. Greg, you will be missed. My prayers are with your family and your extended Corrections family.

My prayers and heart go out to the family..I have family in law enforcement and many of them..They range from Bay County to Walton County and it is something that is a great devotion. I thank all of the Law enforcement workers for ALL their jobs. Every job is important and I know each one is devoted to do their best to serve and protect. Colonel Greg was and will be a hero. I am grateful for the family being the support system to allow him to PROTECT us the citizens and know we have men and women who think of others to make this crazy world a little safer..This man will always be in our hearts and on our minds forever...Look up when loneliness comes..

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"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 whose 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.

You were missed when you left Tomoka with a promotion and moved on.

Colonel Malloy thank you for your service. May God bless you and your family. Rest in peace. You will not be forgotten!

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and fellow officers of Colonel Malloy.

While no one who wears a badge wants to be put into such a situation, you put yourself into the line of fire to protect those whom you might not have even known despite the danger. While I did not have the privilege to have known him personally, I am certain that he has found a place in heaven.

Rest in peace my friend; those of us who remain will cover your post on the thin blue line.
