Reflections for Police Officer Earl Joseph Hauck, II

You are not forgotten Mr. Earl. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers often. I know you are looking down upon them and smiling. April and Ginger, I have fond memories of our childhood and think how happy those times were. Your Dad will never be forgotten. God bless you and your families.

We grew up as a close family. We played football, baseball together. As a girl I could throw a good ball because of you. Deeply missed.

knowing that you are in good company up in heaven, and that your spirit is with us, still.
You left us with changed and broken hearts. The children are now my age and past that of which I was when you were taken. On this twentieth anniversary of your death. you are still often thought of. Having lost you, so many years ago has still
taken toll on all of your family and friends. the first years were almost unbearable,then it became tolerable,now it is a pain in my heart that makes it a reminder of what you told me three days before you died ,when you saw that
I was upset after learning of another friends death, you told me matter of factly,that life goes on. well, you were right, but I hate the fact that you have missed so much.
love always,
"miss" Liz

Though I didnt know you, I recall well the sadness that permeated the entire city after your tragic death. I later befriended your daughter, and went to the Academy with your fiance. All during the academy, we dedicated our runs to you.

You are missed, and thought of often. Rest in Peace.

Thank-you for your service. My dad was a coworker and he is friends with family. I grew up knowing loss in the back of my mind and now, with children of my own, I understand how hard it must have been for them. R.I.P. and Thank-You.

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 whos 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.

Officer Hauck,

I remember well the day you made the ultimate sacrifice. I am a native of New Orleans that was still living there back in 1990. I remember the police reports and the saddness that engulfed the city.

Rest well. Gone but not forgotten.

To Offier Hauck, his daughters and his loved ones:

On this the sixteenth anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

Officer Hauck, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Officer Hauck. I am humbled by your valor, courage, and dedication.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Officer Hauck gave to his community and the citizens of Louisiana, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 22, 1990.
