1st Sgt. Jeffery McLochlin of Rochester was a devoted father and husband. Just a selfless, caring person. A patriot, obviously. He believed in what he was doing. He asked to be at the base he was at because he thought he could accomplish something there. He was a 1979 graduate of Rochester High School and Guardsman for 19 years, and was training Afghan soldiers in police tactics and was on patrol with coalition and Afghan forces when he was shot. He was a six-year Plymouth police veteran had been on military leave from the department since September 2005 and had been expected to return in September. Everybody looked up to him. He was a good family man. He spent most of 2004 serving on a NATO peacekeeping mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina. When he returned from that assignment in November 2004, McLochlin told a reporter at his unit's homecoming: "It feels great." He did everything he could to be a good father and a good husband." Plymouth Mayor Gary Cook has ordered all flags in the city 25 miles south of South Bend lowered to half-staff to mark the second death of a city officer this year. He leaves behind a wife, Nicolle, and three children, Darby, Connor, and Kennedy. His parents, Rich and Cindy McLochlin and his father was Fulton County sheriff in the 1980s.
