An excellent example of bravery, loyalty, duty and honor.
It is this historical piece of knowledge that inspires me to continue to serve the American people as Veteran and as a citizen.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 160th 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.
