VIDEO: Three Springdale volunteer firefighters who died nearly a century ago were remembered and honored at a ceremony Wednesday.
Current firefighters had noticed that the gravesites didn't have headstones, so they decided to change that.
"It's definitely a big sign for the brotherhood, just that all these members behind me would come out and support somebody that was generations before us, somebody we never knew, but they still come out and show their respect for what these men did," said Zachary Wilhelm, Springdale Volunteer Fire Department chaplain.
Wilhelm said the gravesites for Samuel Tuxford, Carl Murdock and Karl Althauser at Springdale Cemetery were unmarked until now.
"We tried to rectify that they've gone so long without any kind of markings, so the fire company provided that," he said.
