Inspector Daniel was a direct descendant of Mary Washington, our nation's first First Lady. In all of his existing records he always used the middle initial "W" instead of "Washington." Perhaps he was a modest man who felt no need to reveal his ancestry. Within the ranks of the U. S. Postal Inspection Service, George W. Daniel has been the only Inspector in Charge to lose his life in the performance of his duties. He had just left a conference, a thunderstorm was underway, and he was warned by others not to drive in a storm, a well founded caution based on the condition of roads and the reliability of automobiles in 1919.
Rest in peace, sir. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

Ron J. Pry, U.S. Postal Inspector

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th anniversary year 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.

"Final Call"
An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do.
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.

Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
"Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way."
"Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through."
"Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine, I'm A Cop, Too."

George was in our service long before I was born. The job is quite different now, but some things never change. Like our appreciation for the bravery and selfless acts of those who came before. As I near retirement I sincerely wish he had the same chance.

Blessings from USPIS Badge #3942 to his family and all those who loved him.
