Below is a quote from the
States Fire Administration official web site:
"Conceived as a tribute to
America's fire service, the National Fallen Firefighters'
Memorial is one of this country's most beautiful monuments to
courage and unselfish service. Constructed in 1981 on the campus
of the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland, the
Memorial was officially designated by Congress as the national
Memorial to career and volunteer fallen firefighters in 1990. It
is a symbol of honor for those who carry on the tradition of
service to their communities."
