Submit a Firefighter Profile for the Roll of Honor

The online Roll of Honor lists the names of all firefighters honored at the National Memorial since 1981, and we provide space for a tribute page for each firefighter.

  • Age
  • Rank
  • Community service and involvement
  • Interests and achievements
  • Awards and honors received
  • Military service
  • Family information
  • Stories and memories about the firefighter
