Your heroism and service is honored today, the 38th 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. Mark, thank you for sharing a brother's devotion.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I hold your family in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace

It has been 37 years for me.My brother was my whole life, he taught me everything. He was my hero, he taught me to be a leader and not a follower. He taught me the true meaning of love. He was a very kind person and loved his wife dearly. I miss him so much and wish I had more time with him. He was a true hero. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and what he did for our family as well as the families he was with in the military. God knew he deserved a better place than what the world had to offer and took him home. I look forward to the day when I can see him again.

You will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial on 13 May 2011 and your family has been located. They are aware of the ODMP and NLEOMF honors you are receiving and they are so proud of you. I am honored to have been able to help in honoring you. You are truly a hero and because of your sacrifice another soldier lived. May God bless your soul and grant you eternal peace.

As my career's end is coming closer, I decided to check and find those who had lost their lives during the year that I was hired. While it's been a long time, I'm sure those you left behind and served with disctinction have kept you alive in their memories. Thanks for your service and for looking out for us you left behind. Rest in peace Officer Mathews!

Thank you for your service to our country and your fellowman. It has been a little over 34 years since the end of your watch and you will not be forgotten. May God continue to bless you for your sacrifice and may he also bless your loved ones. As a retired U.S. Army officer and a current law enforcement officer, I salute you. Rest in peace my brother.

It has taken over 34 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-you are a true hero-your last thought was for the safety of a fellow soldier. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

MP Officer Mathews,

Thank YOU for your service and sacrifice.. You are a HERO and now there will be a station in your honor. I pray they find your family so they can be there to see it dedicated in your honor. God Bless... Rest in Peace..

Of the Troops for the Troops! That's the MP motto. I was a Military Police Officer in the early 1980's stationed for a short time at the 555th MP Co. at Ft. Lee, Virginia, before being transferred to Ft. Pickett. I know that your training and your commitment to the MP motto saved your partner. The Vietnam era wasn't a popular time to serve in our Military, but I thank you and all your brothers that served during this time. God bless you and keep you in his care.

Sergeant Mathews I am sorry it took so long to have you added to this place of honor where you belong. We are still trying to locate your family members to make them aware of you being added to this web site. We also want them at the dedication of the new police station that we are building that will be named in your honor.
