Reflections for Railroad Detective Frank V. Smith

Rest in Peace Railroad Detective Frank V. Smith. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting America's steel roadways.

I Pray for Peace for your ancestors and the men and women who now serve the Railroad Police. I also Pray that the hounds of hell are now gnawing on the bones of those responsible for your murder. May their sorry souls forever burn in hell.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd 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 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.

Detective Smith, today marks the 92nd anniversary of your passing due to the actions of a thief and murderer. Your heroism is something to be admired and I’m sure in the railroad police circles, you must be a legend to have sustained a fatal wound and still to have walked ½ mile to seek assistance.

As a Railroad Police Officer, you helped protect one of the most vital parts of our economy and one of the reasons America is as great as it is. You are all heroes but you in particular were special.

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