Reflections for Special Agent Daniel I. Alfin

Well done agent. You were the sheepdog who died confronting the predator who were intending to harm the lambs. May you rest in God's arms. Say hello to Grogan, and Dove who died confronting a slightly different set of predators, but heroic all the same.

Special Agent Alfin, it's now been 1 years since your murder at the hands of a vile and meaningless individual. Thank you for your service and your efforts to protect children.

May you and Special Agent Schwartzenberger forever Rest in Peace, Brother and God Bless.

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.

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.

Though I do not mourn, nor could I mourn the vile animal who murdered you, Special Agent Alfin, I do mourn you. You contributed to society wherein your murderer did not and then robbed the justice system of prosecuting him and exposing him for the filth he was.

Thank you for your years of service in helping to protect this country from those who would do us harm. God Bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Family, Friends and fellow Law Enforcement brothers and sisters. As I reflect on a 25+ year career as a Law Enforcement Professional I am overwhelmed and consumed by the loss of our sister and brother FBI Law Enforcement Professionals.

May God bless and keep them in His everlasting arms as their memory lives forever in the hearts and minds of those who served and alongside them.

Rest well, your watch is complete we will take it from here.

Dan will be missed by his Bureau family. Just a few months ago he helped my family and I pack up our home. Quiet and unassuming. Crimes against children is not for the faint of heart, it is truly a calling. Dan lived and died a hero- I am proud to have known you. Rest in Eternal Peace.
