National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service
The Charleston Firefighter Support Team traveled to Emmittsburg, Maryland this past weekend to accompany the Charleston 9 families, as well as many of our firefighters and their families, to the National Fallen Firefighter Memorial Service at the National Fire Academy. The weekend was complete with activities for the Charleston 9 families to meet other survivors of fallen firefighters to share their thoughts and feelings and concluded with a most beautiful Sunday morning service to honor 110 of our nation’s bravest. We were truly honored and thankful to be there for this special event.
