I am the widow of Sgt Forest Underwood's son. He was killed before his son I married so I didn't know him, but I heard much praise about him. His son also was a good man. I pray he and his son are reunited. God bless all.

Widow of his son.

I am Sergeant Underwood's second granddaughter. I never knew him, as he was killed before my father and mother were married. My father was only 17 at the time of his death and I know it was very hard on my grandmother and him. It's heartwarming to know that he has not been forgotten after all these years and that people still care to enough to comment. I really wish I could have met him. Though I didn't know him, he has my love and respect. I am very grateful the person that took his my grandfather's valuable life did not get away with it.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 156th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never our respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. You were still doing your job to the very end and providing valuable clues so that murderer could be apprehended.

Rest In Peace.

Sgt. Underwood...while our soldiers were overseas fighting a World War...you were here fighting a never-ending local war against the criminals that infest our society. I agree with the visitor below (Gail) in that all of the stories on the ODMP should be read & I visit this site every day to do so. The bio of your death really says alot about you. God bless. Your work is not forgotten.

As I read your memorial, I reflected on how often officer's last minutes are filled with acts of incredible selflessness or an equally incredible determination to do what has to be done right to the very end.

I visit this page daily because your stories should be read as well as told.
