Reflections for Marshal Artemas J. "Artis" Chitty

His gold badge, given to him by his deputies, has been donated to the U.S. Marshals museum. It has the names of his deputies engraved on the back. If you would like, I can send you a picture. He was my grandfather and I donated the badge.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
