Today, I saw the sign naming the NYS Trooper David Strand Memorial Bridge. Today, I learned of the sacrifices of Trooper Strand and his young family.
And, today I say thank you to Trooper Strand, his those he left behind, and the many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice

Such kind words written to my father. He was 27. He left his young wife, and 7 week old daughter. So many have made the ultimate sacrifice. He had not been forgotten.

It takes a certain kind of person to put their life on the line every day, protecting their community. Protecting those who cannot protect themselves. They are aware there will not always be warm welcomes and friendly greetings from everyone they interact with, but they do the job anyway. Too many officers have paid the ultimate price in the line of duty. I've had the privilege of learning about Trooper Donald A. Strand and keeping his legacy alive as I strive to pursue my goals in this line of work.

A life that touches other's lives on forever.

Rest in peace, Trooper Strand

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 53rd anniversary year 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
