I would like to congratulate the members of our honor guard for their outstanding performance at the International Association of Fire Chiefs conference this morning. They were chosen by the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation to serve as the honor guard for this year’s fallen firefighter memorial. Words cannot describe the pride we experienced as they marched out in front of thousands of the most prominent and respected leaders of the fire service from around the world. This was most certainly one of the proudest moment in the history of the Center Point Fire District.
