Railroad Police agencies seem to be slowly becoming a thing of the past, which is a travesty. For all of those who still serve to protect one of the main things that made America what it is today, and for all who preceded them, we, as a nation, owe our thanks.

Detective Sale, on this 79th anniversary of your death, I say THANK YOU. You are a hero.

God Bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
