IN MEMORIAL TO THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
On December 22, 1994, Officer D'Antonio Washington was struck down by a cowardly inmate at U.S. Penitentiary Atlanta. He will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him. His death serves as a reminder of the seriousness of the job that we do. Let us not forget Mr. Washington or the job that he did. May God Bless him.
Since 1901, twenty-three Federal correctional workers have been killed by inmates while in the line of duty.
