Your heroism and service is honored today, the 110th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Detective Rauland, today marks the 107th anniversary of your murder. Your courage and strength that day, despite your wound, was amazing and the stuff of legends. Your descendents should be proud to have such a man as you in their bloodline.

Thank you for your service to the Railroad and indirectly, to America in general, which the rails helped make a great country.

God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Ptl. Jim Leahy, Jr.
