Det. Laicy,
Sir, it has taken 91 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as Leo but for our Country as well when you served during WW I.

Detective Laicy, you gave your life helping to protect one of America's greatest assets, our railroads.

Railroad Police agencies seem to be slowly becoming a thing of the past, which is a travesty. For all of those who still serve to protect one of the main things that made America what it is today, and for all who preceded them, we, as a nation, owe our thanks.

You are also a hero for your service to this nation in The Great War. You survived that hell, only to die at the hands of a thug in your own country. Infuriating.

God Bless you, Brother, and may you forever Rest in Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 91st 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.
