Special Agent Langdon, your brutal murder has not been forgotten, but even more important, your efforts to protect one of the chief reasons out nation is what it is today, it's railroads. You truly are a hero.

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.
