Reflections for Special Deputy Marshal Anthony Charles McGrew

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 recruited Tony from the Tri-Base job fair in Jacksonville, Fl after he completed 20 years in the US Navy as a Chief Air Traffic Controller, we sent him to the basic academy in Savannah and his wife a dedicated Registered Nurse pinned his first badge on at graduation. Tony was a real "gentle giant" he was a dedicated Kingsland Officer, our breacher on the SRT and spent his last few years at Kingsland PD as a School Resource Officer, he left to accept a position at the Federal Court in Brunswick with the U.S. Marshal Service and protected his federal judge with professional service. A true friend I will miss him until the day I join him.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
