Day 63: Dismissed

So you might have noticed by now that I have quite a few photos of firefighters, firehouses, fireboats and the memorials to fallen firefighters.  In admiration of the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to saving the lives of others, I like to try to feature them in their finest moments and during their hardest times.  I like to try to show the dedication that each one of them have for their job day in and day out.

This photo was taken of the firemen after they were dismissed from standing as honor guards saluting Corey Ankum as he made his way to his final resting place. The firefighters from surrounding communities showed up hours before the processional started to arrange their apparatus to honor Corey.  They stood at attention throughout the processional as countless police and firetrucks lead the way.
