These heartfelt comments are always very much appreciated.
For those who weren't in attendance, the Memorial Service held for Vic was an exceptional act of kindness and respect.
An outstanding DOSING monument and bench is in place on S. Lone Pine Avenue in Springfield, near the location of his death (before the funeral home - near the intersection of U.S. Highway 65 and S. Lone Pine Avenue.) Vic's burial/tombstone is in Maple Park Cemetery, Springfield, MO.

Additionally, Sgt. Don Richardson, Troop D, who was instrumental in making the memorial service honoring Vic happen, has also written a short paperback, worthy of reading:

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 70th 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

On the 66th anniversary of Trooper Dosing's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Trooper Dosing is not forgotten.

Trooper Dosing,
How ironic that you gave your life in service of our at home...while so many others gave their all at Pearl Harbor. You never knew about Pearl Harbor or WWII...but I bet you would have went and served proudly...just as you did with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Rest in Peace my Brother...Semper Fi

Two very tragic events in one day...
The death of Trooper Dosing, and the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
Rest in peace brother.

Trooper Dosing, it's been a very long
time since you gave your life to save
others but we still appreciate what you did. We pray for your family and hope

I did not know Trooper Dosing but my dad was Ralph Campbell. I miss him every day.

The memorial in Springfield MO greatly pleases my family because Victor was my father's first cousin. My dad was very close to Victor and especially to his older brother Elmo Dosing. I grew up knowing about Victor's death. Our family honored him greatly. My brother Ralph H. Campbell Jr. was also a MO SHP before his death in Nov 1988. We have a special love for all police officers as we honor Victor for his sacrifice. Thank you to all our brave troopers. Go With God. Be Careful.
