Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen member killed in the line-of-duty breaks the hearts of many of us—family, friends and co-workers. The death of a fellow member spurs the minds and souls of every BLET member to help prevent another Brother or Sister from a needless death on the rails.
The BLET members below are constant reminders and tragic realities that our union’s work may never be finished. Nevertheless, if we do not continually fight to gain rail safety improvements for employees and the public, then these brave individuals will have sacrificed their lives without the full and proper respect that is their due.
We, the 55,000 members, officers and employees of the BLET, hereby salute and forever memorialize these members who gave their lives while faithfully performing their duties on the job. By their deaths and our sincere desire to understand and eliminate the causes, we pray that we may keep other loved ones from being added to this memorial.
The BLET vows never to forget—the BLET vows never to give up the fight.
I will find a way or make one.
—Hannibal, 217 B.C.
