Your heroism and service is honored today, the 67th 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.

Rest In Peace.

Your memory will always be honored and revered for time never diminishes respect

Ptl. Callahan, your efforts on behalf of the people of Boston and the Commonwealth as a whole have not been forgotten. Your murder was the last crime that lowlife ever committed. My thanks go to the officer who stopped him. Though that did not keep you from dying, there is little doubt in my mind that other lives were saved. Your sacrifice makes you a martyr; your life makes you a hero.
God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
