Your heroism and service is honored today, the 75th 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.

Your nation remembers you with pride.
Rest In Peace

Gus was a good friend of my great grandfather, Philip A. Berg, who I am named after. I just found several letters that he wrote to my grandmother. My mother always heard a lot of stories about what a great man he was. I am very excited that these letters will now belong to me.
