Border Patrol Agent Eric Cabral, Star Number: Oscar 143 of the Boulevard Station was buried today in San Diego after dying in the line of duty due to heat stroke.  He was 31.

I flew the lead aircraft in the missing man formation over his grave site.  There were over 150 law enforcement vehicles from all over San Diego County.  From what I hear, they pulled out all the stops for the funeral; flag presentation, missing man formation flight, and a riderless horse, among other things.  I had never heard Dispatch issue a last call for a fallen agent before.  I didn't let the last call to get to me during the flight but it's hitting me right now.  Wow.

Rest in peace, bro.

Haven't been here in a while. A couple of the guys at Blythe knew him from the academy. The whole thing sucks. If I remember right he had kids as well. Hydrtate hydrate hydrate! A meth head bailed on an agent a couple days ago. Took off into the desert at the same time losing his shoes. We cut for about 5 miles before it went dry on jagged rock. (my first time cutting for bare feet) I had this agent in my thoughts the whole time. I drank the entire camelbak and stayed in constant communication with partners asking about water. I never got time to take my vest off and got some heat rash where its worn. Stay cognizant!

Good man.  WAYYYY too many agents view the vest as too much of a nuisance to wear.  Me and my carpool buddy were about the only guys on our shift that routinely wore our vests.

BTW, did you get my mma.tv mail?

yes I did thanks. It was one of those things where I kinda already knew the answer, I was just looking for more info. I handed the memo in and we'll see what happens. If they go on straight time-in, I'll lose out. If they go based on experience handling dogs I see no reason in the world I shouldn't get it.

pfsjkd, He was best friends with a buddy of mine from academy who went to BP. I remember the call I got from him the day it happened, tragic.
