Video of the 2014 Flag Folding Detail

This year, 107 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2013 or previous years will be honored during the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, October 11 – 12. During the Memorial Service, the Survivors of the fallen receive an American flag that has been raised and lowered over the Memorial, then carefully folded. On August 22 – 23, 2014, honor guard members from across the U.S. participated in a flag folding detail, including members from Prescott, AZ and Bedford, NH, which will have firefighters honored this October.
