Milton honors 9/11 fallen firefighters
The Milton Fire Department hosted a 9/11 Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service at Milton Memorial Park where residents could honor the memory of the heroes killed in the line of duty on 9/11 in the Twin Towers terrorist attack.
More than 100 people attended the service where the 5-5-5-5 bell was tolled on the Milton firetruck to honor their fallen brothers. A police multi-jurisdictional flag honor guard presented the colors while the Delaware State Police Pipers and Drummers played Amazing Grace.
Pastor Tim Wilson of the Milton Wesleyan Church spoke of the heroes and gave a special prayer to the crowd, 20th District Representative Steve Smyk read the policeman's prayer and Milton Fire Department past-president Jack Hudson read the fireman's prayer.
