Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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.

Inspector Walthall's story was told by Charles Askins (One of the two other inspectors in the vehicle) in his book Unrepenant Sinner.
The weapon used was a 32 Special caliber Winchester Model 1894 lever action rifle.

As I look at the faces of the men and women here, I see the faces of my co-workers. I can imagine each of them shooting the bull and swapping war stories at choir practice as the meat sizzles on the grill. I see them laughing, pranking and teasing their fellow agents, as we often do when we relieve stress. I wish that each of them were still here to share the good times.

And I feel compelled to look at each of the faces here and remember…to remember that each of them made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and we should NEVER forget them or their service.

Too often the sacrifices of those who serve our country are overlooked or casually dismissed by the very public they served so selflessly. But WE should never forget them…each and every one of them. May they each rest in peace eternally in God’s loving embrace.

Thank You Inspector Walthall for your ultimate sacrifice. I know your partner Inspector Curtis D Mosley never forgot the sacrifice that you made defending the border of the United States. We should all remeber theses scarifices to protect the freedoms that we all enjoy.
