Special Agent Sandlands, your job was not an easy one, nor a popular one, but you knew it had to be done and you did it even risking and then making the ultimate sacrifice. On this 79th anniversary of your murder, I salute you and all the agents of the ATF. You all help make this country a little safer every day and you are heroes.

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