Patrolman Johnston,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the Illinois National Guard. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 69th 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 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. How proud you must be that your family has continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Jesus is my front sight,
Sovereign in my life.
In peace, or in battle,
He guides my warrior stride.
Jesus is my front sight,
Jesus is my front sight,
Twas He who led me here.
