The soldier, above
all other people,
prays for peace,
for he must suffer
and bear the deepest
wounds and scars
of war.

The flag was at half mast the day of my visit to honor the life of Wisconsin State Trooper Trevor Casper (May 21, 1993 – March 24, 2015), shot and killed in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, on March 24, 2015, while attempting to apprehend a bank robbery and murder suspect. He was the youngest law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in Wisconsin history; he died a few months shy of his 22nd birthday.
