During the ceremony, Col. McNeil conducted a moment of silence in memory of those who have lost their life as a result of the storm. He also expressed his true appreciation for all first responders and volunteers who have provided emergency services since the storm hit NC.

The band is privileged to rehearse weekly on the grounds of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol training academy in Raleigh – and we hope we didn’t district these recruits during their journey to be come TROOPERS with the skirl of the bagpipes and war beat of the drums during our weekly band practices.   


We wish all of these new State Troopers success and safety in the years of service ahead; be careful out there

A Trooper's Prayer Be Thou my Vision, my light and my guide

Lord, keep me safe when dark highways I ride

My shield and my protection when in danger I walk

Give me courage when by fear I am stalked.


Comfort the families of those who have gone before

Lord, ease our grief, our souls restore

Our loved ones are the righteous, forever they stand

To take their places at Your right hand.


With dedication they led the life they chose

And suffered the thorn to leave us the rose

Brave lives were not wasted, they gave us their love,

Their lives, our inspiration: their memory, our strength.


We who are left salute their brave deeds

We'll cary on with the duty they leave,

They'll be our heroes; their valor will lead

In courage and honor, we will always believe.
