Reflections for Lieutenant Robert Earl "Bo" McCallister

Lt. McCallister,
On today, the 3rd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Susquehanna Township. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

On this actual anniversary of your heroic and untimely death, I’d like to reiterate my previous reflection and say that your actions and service are always remembered by your law enforcement brethren.

Lt., your assailant may have never been caught but he will surely, if not already, face a much higher authority and justice at a different time. Thank you for your service and rest in peace knowing that your memory and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Bo died from injuries sustained in the line of duty.

To the McCallister family, fellow officers, and all who call Bo beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I know that that you will receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Bo gave to his community and the citizens of Pennsylvania and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 20, 2019.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

I am sad to read that Lt. McCallister's killer was never caught and punished. I can only pray that person will be punished for their actions when they stand before God on judgement day. What a true hero to continue to serve even after being wounded. Prays for comfort, hope and peace for all his family and friends. I am sorry for your loss.
