Welcome

This site is in honor of James D. McNaughton, a New York City Police Officer who was killed in Iraq. Jimmy was a Staff Sergeant with the Army Reserve's 306th Military Police Battalion, based out of Uniondale, Long Island. Coming from a family of police officers, he joined the NYPD a little over 8 years ago as a member of the first Police Academy class to graduate after 9/11. He was assigned to Transit Bureau, District 2 in Lower Manhattan. He reported for duty in the Army on October 4th, 2002. On August 2nd, 2005, Jimmy's Unit was assigned a dangerous mission, which was between him and a couple other Sergeants. Jimmy volunteered over the other soldiers because they had children and he knew the severity of the mission. While on this mission, Jimmy was training an Iraqi officer up in a tower and was struck by a sniper. James McNaughton, 27, was the first New York City Cop to give his life for his country as a soldier in the line of duty while serving in Iraq.
