I just finished watching Narcos Mexico and all the memories came back to me when we were all in Houston. My father loved you like a son. M looks so much like you. You were great, big and strong, our country's protector. Just like my Dad. There was nothing that you both couldn't do. I miss those times. I miss you. I miss my Dad. I'm sure you both are having a ball up in heaven. I'll see you again friend. Until then.

I went to Jr. High and High School with Frank. We were in band together and we both played trumpet/cornet. I remember Frank being a person of conviction and not one to conform to others.

He was a person of honor. I wish Frank's family happiness, He was a man that anyone would be proud to have known.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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 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.

I am sure this was also one of the saddest days in DEA history.

Agent Wallace,

First of all, thank you for your bravery and sacrifice.

Secondly, I recently read how your parents have donated a scholarship in your name for the past 15 years to children of slain law enforcement officers. The article also reported that your Mother just passed away from cancer.

My thoughts, prayers, and gratitude go out to you and your family. My only hope is that your family takes comfort in knowing that a Mother has reunited with her son in Heaven.

God Bless You.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I did not know Frank, but have just recieved a scholarship in his name for $1500.00 for college. I would like to say that I have the utmost respect for the DEA and what they do. It is one of the toughest jobs in Law Enforcement. My father was Killed in a gun fight while on duty in 1996 and I pray that Franks friends and relatives are able to get on with life and remember him in a positive aspect. He must have been a great Agent and Person.
