As part of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, MD, the band joined other bands from around the nation to honor 103 fire heroes. 80 of those died in the line of duty during 2017 and 23 died in previous years but had not yet been added to the memorial. To see both the candlelight vigil and the actual memorial videos with the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Pipes and Drums, which we are part of, you can click here. On the memorial weekend video, the video doesn’t start until 6:40 into the video for some reason so please be patient.
The band also had a few honors as Steve Cochran, our former Pipe Major, was honored by being made the Pipe Major Emeritus of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Pipes and Drums and John Bidegeneta was named as Drum Sergeant of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Pipes and Drums.
