I convinced Carlos to join the Marine Corps so as to be in top condition for the Troopers. I remember how happy he was to be a Marine and trooper. Rest in peace my brother.

Carlos was my first roommate at Trenton State College {The College of N.J.} we started on June 24, 1973. He was a great friend and we had plans that we never got to realize. I think of him often and wonder if his son knows how powerful a man his dad was. I pray for blessings to all of his family and would love to know what they are up to today.

I was working on the turnpike as a bread delivery driver that night. I have never forgotten Trooper Negron. He is remembered in my prayers as a Good Samaritan. My proudest possession is a letter I received from Clinton Pagano thanking me. May he rest in peace.

I had the honor of knowing and working with Trooper Negron when he was a recruit at the Hopewell State Police Barracks. We often time patrolled together. He was a big man, who wore the uniform with pride. He was always respecful and treated everyone with fairness. I was assigned to Troop D, the New Jersey Turnpike, with Carlos, when he was fatally shot. If not for being taken from us so soon Carlos would no doubt have enjoyed a long and successful career. He has not been forgotten by myself and the other New Jersey State Troopers who got to know him. He is missed. . . .

Carlos It's been so long...I was just a teenager when you were so sadly taken from everyone who loved you. I miss all the fun times our families shared at your home and mine when you were just a young guy and all you ever wanted to do was to be a Trooper. You finally did it and both my parents and yours were so very proud. I'm glad you had the time you did to make a difference:) I will always hold a place in my heart for you:)

Trooper Negron was a member of my unit in the Marin Corp Reserves in W. Trenton. He and I were detailed to the Communications section. When Negron approached me one day and asked what the police academy was like, I told him him with his background in the Marine Corp and his desire to be a police officer, he would have no problem what so ever. Carlos brought his homework to our drill weekends and I helped him study while he was in the academy. I was only one tear on the road myself at that time. I was devestated when I heard the news the day he passed away. I was working and the incident happened only a few miles from where I worked. I miss Carlos alot, he was a fine example of a Marine and a Trooper.

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.
