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.

Rest In Peace.

Sgt. Koning, today marks the 65th anniversary of your tragic death. I wish to thank you for the time you spent protecting America's Railroads, especially in time of war. You provided a great service to this nation and for that service and the sad fact that it took your life, you have not been forgotten.

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

Far too often railroad police officers are not noticed or not acknowledged. I am glad to see Sergeant Koning. Justice may be blind, but these officers are the healthy eyes of the rails. God bless Joseph Koning, and his fellow high-iron officers for their work and countless sacrifices.

I pretty much only know of my great-granfather through second hand stories as my father was only 2 when he past. I thank you for honoring his memory in this way. I cannot put into words the pride I feel finding out he was in Law Enforcement and that he is remembered. THANKS. Daniel Koning

Joseph had 5 children who are no longer with us, who would have been so proud to see him honored in this way. He has many grandchildren who never knew him, who are also very proud to see him honored this way. Thank you, Mary Beth Meyer

I did not know my grandfather due to his untimely death. I understand that he was a fine man who loved his family. The tribute is appreciated.
