Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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.

Captain Albert Gleason,

To have died in the act of arresting another is among the highest risks a law officer takes. We recognize you as one who was committed to protecting the public he served. We honor you as a hero among heros. We admire the bravery that brings you...and us, proud recognition as a soldier of the law. I render to you, sir, a final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)
