Sgt. Jason Thomas (pictured), who had been out of the Marine Corps for about a year, was dropping his daughter off at his mother's Long Island home on the morning of September 11th when she told him planes had struck the Twin Towers. He retrieved his Marine uniform, sped to Manhattan and parked his car when one of the towers collapsed. Thomas headed directly into the fallen rubble and cloud of ash.

"Someone needed help. It didn't matter who," he said. "I didn't even have a plan. But I have all this training as a Marine, and all I could think was, 'My city is in need.'"

Thomas ran into another ex-Marine, Staff Sgt. David Karnes (who was also wearing his uniform), and together the pair searched for survivors. Carrying little more than flashlights and an infantryman's shovel, they climbed the mountain of debris, skirting dangerous crevasses and shards of red-hot metal, calling out "Is anyone down there? United States Marines!"

It was dark before they heard a response from two fallen police officers who were pinned under the debris. The two Marines crawled into a deep pit to find McLoughlin and Jimeno, injured but alive.

Sgt. Thomas returned to Ground Zero every day for another 2 1/2 weeks to help in any way he could. His identity remained a mystery until Oliver Stone’s 2006 film “World Trade Center” chronicled the rescue of the officers, and Thomas stepped forward.

After 9 days of helping at Ground Zero, Sgt. David Karnes returned to Connecticut, and reenlisted. Later he served two tours of duty in Iraq.

The efforts of both men have remained inspiring for many Americans who survived the September 11 attacks. For their selflessness and bravery we remember their actions. Carry on.

[08/11/21]   Greetings,

Thank you for your continued support of the LCC and our work to educate the community and to maintain a connection between the public and Law Enforcement.

You are invited to attend our September 2021 Loudoun Crime Commission (LCC) Luncheon on 10 September. Our speaker will be FBI Special Agent Morgan Bailey, who will give us an update on Homegrown Violent Extremism including Northern Virginia.

BIO: Special Agent Bailey entered the FBI in 2008 after serving as a collegiate coach for approximately 12 years. On entering the FBI, he was assigned to the San Diego field office where he investigated public corruption, financial crime, human intelligence, and counter-terrorism.

In 2015 Agent Bailey took a supervisory role in the Counter-terrorism Division where he managed counter-terrorism cases run by the Washington Field Office. In 2016 he was promoted to Unit Chief in the Directorate of Intelligence in Washington DC. Most recently he was assigned as a field supervisor in the Washington DC Field Office where he supervised the National Capital Response Squad and currently supervises a squad which investigates Homegrown Violent Extremism in Northern Virginia.

This event begins at 1230 pm on Friday, September 10, 2021, at the Belmont Country Club - doors open at noon for gathering and socializing. (Please plan to bring a mask as appropriate for you and any updated guidelines. We may be restricted to 50 attendees, so RSVP early).

We hope all LCC members will attend and invite their friends to take this opportunity to meet and interact with Loudoun's law enforcement officials, and to gain some insight into crime issues in our community. We look forward to seeing you all there (we are limited to 50 attendees for this meeting).

To attend, please send an RSVP by Tuesday, September 7th, 2021 to: [email protected]

The Leesburg Police Department would like to extend our deepest sympathies to fallen Pentagon Police Officer George Gonzalez of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency.

Last night, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency observed End of Watch for Officer Gonzalez who was tragically killed during an incident at the Pentagon bus platform.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, he was a die-hard Yankees fan. He was a graduate of New York City’s Canarsie High School and joined the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA) as a police officer on July 22, 2018. He was promoted twice and attained the rank of Senior Officer in 2020.

As a military and police veteran, Officer Gonzalez had served previously with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the Transportation Security Administration, and United States Army. He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for his service in Iraq.

We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.

Greetings Loudoun Crime Commission Members and Friends:

As I take over Chairmanship and 2021 begins, we are seeing a continuation if not an increase of political strife, frustrations, and levels of lawlessness across America over the past year. Calls for changes in policing and related policies are hot topics and I suspect this will continue for some time. While we here in Loudoun County have been blessed by not having experienced the levels of violence and lawlessness seen in more urban cities, we are not immune; and we certainly care for all our fellow Americans that may be suffering.

I want to thank you for your continued interest in and support of the LCC and our local Law Enforcement community. We hope to be back to our luncheons in March and will keep you apprised of our next meeting. Lastly, I want to mention two recent events:

- On Saturday, January 2, 2021, Loudoun County Sheriff's Deputy Camron Gentry was struck by several bullets while on the scene of a shoplifting incident involving a convicted felon. Deputy Gentry has already undergone multiple surgeries and will have many more ahead of him, along with a long recovery. The Loudoun Dulles Fraternal Order of Police is raising funds through a Go Fund Me page to assist Deputy Gentry with his long-term recovery.

o GO FUND ME: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/deputy-sheriff-shot-in-the-line-of-duty?utm_campaign=oc&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=crowdrise&fbclid=IwAR1Zt91ZtkXL0WFEMgSpz_1xqje9v1BI-SjUYlnDsiDbvrH-S2dwAAJyrl8

- The Loudoun County Crime Commission extends its deepest condolences to the family, friends, and fellow officers of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who was injured in the line of duty and later succumbed to his injuries. A GO FUND ME page had been set up for donations, which received more than $700k. (The family has decided to close donations at this time.)

The upcoming Congressional Hearings are going to be extremely important in determining how law enforcement agencies respond in the future, and should clarify the Congressional Leadership's as well as the U.S. Capitol Police’s responsibilities in reference to the safety of buildings and personnel in Washington DC and throughout the United States and its Territories.

Respectfully,

Frank Holtz
Chairman, Loudoun Crime Commission

Loudoun County Public Schools

The Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Safety and Security Division recently honored two retiring members of the Leesburg Police Department who were associated with the school resource officer (SRO) program.

Sgt. Steve Pebler was the police department’s Traffic Management Unit supervisor (having previously served as SRO supervisor). He retired after 29 years of service to Leesburg. Pebler joined the Leesburg Police Department in 1981 after serving four years in the Air Force and with the Sherwood, Ark., Police Department. During his years with the Leesburg Police Department, he also served as patrol supervisor and Negotiations Team leader.

Officer Mike Buracker served as the school resource officer at Loudoun County High School and Catoctin Elementary. (He also has assisted at other Leesburg schools throughout the years when their primary SRO was on leave.) Buracker joined the Leesburg Police Department in 1991. He also has served as patrol supervisor, detective and as a traffic officer. Buracker was part of a long-standing effort by school resource officers to donate meals and presents to students in need during the Holiday Season.

“On behalf of LCPS, I want to thank Steve and Mike for their outstanding service and dedication in protecting our community,” said LCPS Director of Safety and Security John Clark. “My congratulations and best wishes in retirement.”
