This was my great grand uncle. I never knew anything about him as that side of my family is somewhat shrouded in mystery. I cannot help but feel a sense of pride and connection now; I'm a patrol officer as well. RIP, Virgil- your family continues to hold the line.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 101rst anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

And part of America died.
Somebody killed a policeman today,
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
And spend many long lonely nights.
The beat he walked was a battle field too
just as if he had gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
In your town or mine,
While we slept in comfort behind locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And stands at each new rookies' side.
He answered the call,of himself and gave his all,
And a part of America died.

No officer shall go without reflection. While we don't know the circumstances surrounding your passing, that matters not.
What does matter is your service to the citizens of Alexandria. And I thank you for that.
We continue on in your memory.
