Reflections for Police Officer Alan Daniel McCollum

I had the privilege of deploying to the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Africa with Alan as a young Staff Sergeant with the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) in 2004. He was a fantastic teammate and mentor to this young Army Captain. He was a consummate professional and brought exceptional skills to complex situations, and always upbeat and one hell of a funny guy.

I will miss you, my friend. He did not deserve to die like this. God bless his family.

Officer McCollum,
I had the honor to ride in your memory with the 2021 Law Enforcement United Tough Ride. My heart goes out to your family; though we have never met, you, your family, and fellow Officers will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I am a child survivor of another Officer, and it pains me to see another Hero returned to God too quickly. Rest in peace.

I wish I had known Officer McCollum. From all the people who truly knew him I have heard that he was an excellent husband, father, friend and officer; the best of men. Blessings and peace of the Lord God be with his family and friends.

"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand."

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.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Alan was killed in the line of duty.

To the McCollum family, fellow officers, and all who call Alan, 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 Officer McCollum gave to his community and the citizens of Texas and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on January 31, 2020.
