IN EACH OF OUR LIVES, IF WE ARE FORTUNATE, WE HAVE THE CHANCE TO WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO STAND OUT FROM THE REST, AND WHO INSPIRE US WITH THEIR QUALITIES. WE ARE BETTER PERSONS FOR HAVING KNOWN THEM, AND JUST MAYBE WE ARE ABLE TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION OF OUR OWN BECAUSE OF THEIR EXAMPLE.  THESE ARE SUCH MEN. I WAS LUCKY TO KNOW THEM, WORK WITH THEM, AND CALL THEM "FRIEND".

TROOPER
CARL P. MOLLER



KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY
FEB. 13, 1976

Carl was my mentor. He was the guy that took me under his wing when I was an "FNG", and prone to making the dumb mistakes that new guys make. He took care of me, taught me a ton of valuable lessons, and made such an impression on me that, more thirty years after his death, I still feel his influence.
Carl was a U.S. Army Viet Nam veteran who distinguished himself in that conflict, but never bragged about it. As a cop, he was everything a cop should be and a superb role model. He could be tough as nails when necessary and never backed down from a scrap, but it was not uncommon for him to spend his days off trying to help and improve the lives of people he had to arrest on the job. 
He was trying to assist another motorist who had broken down when he was struck and killed by an intoxicated truck driver who continued on without stopping, but was quickly apprehended.

TROOPER
ALAN MECKEL



DIED FEBRUARY 1997

Al was an outstanding individual that was liked by everyone. He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, and originally worked as an officer at one of the state's hospitals, where he injured his back. This injury caused him tremendous pain and complications throughout the rest of his life, but he was never one to whine. 
Al and I worked together at Troop K, in Colchester, where I came to know him as a fearless, but compassionate person. He was always cheerful, and was always there for those he worked with. He later worked at Troop F, in Westbrook, where he served many years as Resident Trooper in the town of Old Lyme.
Al was also involved in the "Big Brothers" program, where he made a commitment which he honored for many years, making a difference in another life.
He was a good friend, he was taken too early, and his is the kind of loss that makes us ask, "Why him?"
