I stopped by the New Bern Police Department his morning to pay my respects to fallen Officer Alexander E. Thalmann in the only way I know how- by sharing a few photos.
Officer Thalmann was only 22 years old had had been on the job for just 7 months before being shot while attempting to question a suspect late Friday night. Monday, he succumbed to his injuries. Not only was he a police officer, but he was also a lance corporal in the Marine Corps Reserves.
Let us not forget this brave man's service to his city and country.

St. Thomas is North Carolina's oldest church, in North Carolina's oldest town. The area was settled in the 1690s and the town came to be in 1705. The town itself has an interesting history with several NC historical figures calling it home including John Lawson and, probably most notably, Blackbeard.
The church itself was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and services are still held there regularly. It's definitely worth a visit to these historic grounds!
