Reflections for Police Officer Joseph J. Baumann

Officer Baumann,
On today, the 80th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with U.S. Army on the U.S./Mexico Border in 1916 and during World War I and the Army of Occupation in Germany after the War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

My Dad is Richard Baumann, Officer Baumann's cousin; he just told me this story and we found this memorial. Such a sad thing. Joseph's father Andrew was my grandfather Conrad's brother.

Joe Baumann was my grand uncle on my mother's side. Joe had two children and the youngest (a son) was only 5 so my mother was his babysitter during the funeral. Both children married and had children of their own but have passed on.

Joe was also an Army veteran of the 1916 Mexican Border Campaign and the occupation of Germany after WWI.

According to my mother's younger brother, Joe's murderer was convicted of 1st degree murder 'with a recommendation for mercy' and was released from prison after 15 years.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 70th 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.

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

Rest In Peace
