NCFFF Memorial Service & Mothers Day

Raleigh, NC – Today, the N.C. fire service recognized two fallen brothers (Chad Green and Adam Miller) at the 2011 N.C. Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. The NCFFF, honor guards, bag pipers and support personnel did a tremendous job organizing and delivering this year’s service.  Before the service I spoke with Frankie Capps from Union Road Fire Department. Officers and firefighters from Union Road Fire Department traveled up Saturday to attend the service. Frankie had it right today when he said that all firefighters, especially new firefighters, should attend the memorial service and witness firsthand how the loss of a brother or sister impacts families and fellow firefighters. If you haven’t taken the opportunity, I suggest next year you do what Union Road did today, load up your newest firefighters and share a message thru a powerful experience.

To all Moms out there, may you have a happy and blessed Mothers Day!

Be Safe and Take Care.
