Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Special Officer William R. Rank

Officer Rank, it never fails to amaze me how many over the years turned what would be a simple 'trespass' arrest into murder. Why? We'll never know, although there are no doubt many reasons, but none good.

Brother, thank you for helping to protect one of America's greatest assets, it's railroads. May God Bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace.

I am honored to be the second of what I am sure will be many more reflections honoring your service. Please know that no passage of time will ever erase your sacrifice. Rest in peace always.
