Three members of the DVFD, President Lindley Hudson, DVFD Fire Police and member of the Sussex County Honor Guard Cathy McCabe, and Aux. member Sherry Hudson were in attendance to pay tribute to those firefighters from all over the United States, who heroically died while serving and protecting their communities. The memorial was created as a national symbol of gratitude and a tribute to the firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty. The memorial half wall where all the plaques from each year’s names of the fallen. Around the wall is flags from every state in the center are five big flag poles honoring military, Maryland State Flag, FireFighters flag and EMS flag, and the U.S. Honor flag, which it flew during the 911 attack over ground zero and is in honor of all heroes. The service was breathe taking and heartfelt to touch on just some of the special tributes pipes and drums from all over the United States. The placing of the Presidential wreath, unveiling of this year’s memorial plaque, bag pipes selection, tolling of the bells, 5/5/5, wings of love the release of a flock of snow white doves, symbolizing hope, love, peace and memories deep within our hearts. Presentation of the flags to the deceased families, and very proud to be standing in front of Dagsboro Volunteer Fire Company brick that the department bought years ago to show tribute to the fallen. It's just one of thousands of individual bricks that make up the Walk of Honor that connects the National Fallen Firefighters memorial chapel to the National Monument where the eternal flame is lit. Before i go Lin and I would like to thank President Fred Bare of Gumboro for asking us to go and for taking us with him and 5 other neighboroing Vol. Fire company's. showing us around and what to do, where to go, he was just great, thank-you Fred for a weekend we will never forget it will be forever in our hearts.I would like to end my story with the saying on the memorial "For no cause is as noble as saving another's life and no sacrifice is greater than giving your own to do it".
