While conducting an operation in the area I stopped by at the closed rest area and found the memorial. Cleaned a little and I needed to look it up. Officer Cochran may you rest in peace.

I am out at his memorial marker now at the east bound Mohawk rest area. The rest area has been closed for sometime and the area is pretty shabby but someone cleaned up around the stone memorial. R.I.P. Officer Cochran and thank you for your service.

I thank all of you that have posted wonderfull things to say about my grandfather. It is nice to see unknown strangers leaving such wonderfull feed back. I thank you all.

I will not be able to go to my grandfathers grave, memorial cross, and memorial services this year in AZ. It breaks my heart to not be able to attend. My Cousin and her family as well as mine have made it a family tradition the last 2 years.

We'll do it for sure next year grandpa. I promiss!

I was down to Aztec AZ on 08/27/10, where the memorial for Officer Cochran is located along the old highway. It was gratifying to see that it had recently been painted and a wreath placed upon it. Although now over 50 years past, it is good to see that Officer Cochran has not been forgotten.


August 28, 2010

After over 50 years people still care enough to leave 'thank you's' and remembrances to an officer who died in the line of duty. We are grateful for your years of service, and for those who left the memorial in your honor beside the highway.

I just stopped at the rest stop and noticed your memorial. You gave your life trying to keep others safe and for that you will not be forgotten

Brother Cochran,

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.

You’re Brothers in Blue
