Trooper Philip Lamonaco

Today I packed up the family and headed to the Great Wolf Lodge in the Pocono Mountains. Its nice to be able to enjoy 84 degree pool water while there is still a pile of snow on the ground. While travelling on I 80 near milepost 8 on the way out of New Jersey I told my wife I needed to make a short stop on the shoulder. It was the spot where back in the early days of my career that Trooper Lamonaco lost his life in a roadside gun battle with two scumbags. Thousands of people drive by this sign every week. It is important to remember those who gave up weekends like this with their families and so much more. Eternal life grant unto him O Lord. Let us never forget his sacrifice.
