Special Agent Huffman, when working in a rail yard, the risk of injury or death can come in many different ways as you well knew. How tragic that your life was taken in such an accident.

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.

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