  2. That is exactly how my brother died. My sympathies to the family. May you rest in peace, brother. Thank you for your sacrifice.

  3. My deepest sympathies to Trooper Moden’s family, fellow Troopers and members of the Colorado State Troopers service.

  4. Trooper Moden. In the rising of the sun and in it’s setting, we remember him and speak his name. A State Trooper isn’t just a good law enforcement officer. A State Trooper from the outset is lead by example and selected not in a good old boy system of duplicity, but in one that embodies and respects the ideals of oath. Quality of leadership and character trickles down, always. A loss is like a quake in a Jedi force and outward. When drivers see a state Trooper’s car, trust and safety follow. Trust by observation proves. We circle up for Trooper Moden, his family and posse. We salute his Chief, Col. Packard, in sadness rippling from VA.

  5. One down is one too many. We know the risks for this occupation. He died with his boots on. Rest in peace. We will see you again. Your life mattered. Prayers to all family and loved ones. Tragic deaths like these are always a powerful hit, ones that takes our breath away.
