Honoring fallen firefighters, the state of Iowa paid its respect to those who gave all including Clinton firefighter Lieutenant Eric Hosette. Sunday morning in Coralville, fire departments, and families came from all across to pay tribute. They honored past, present, and future brothers and sisters that wear the thin red line.
They marched with purpose and in solidarity remembering the names of those who gave all.
“Honoring those that have served for our communities and some of them have laid their life down and given it for their service for others,” said Fire Chief Brad Burken, Charlotte Fire Department.
As their names that were etched upon the memorial walls were called, wreaths were laid by families and the emotions could be felt by all.
