Emergency Services Monument Dedication
I shot photos at the dedication of a new monument honoring emergency services personnel in Kennebunk, Maine over the weekend. This photo is of Cub Scout Joey Corbett (son of FF/Medic Jim Corbett) reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the ceremony.
While there were many politicians (and designees of those who had much more important things to do) in attendance, the most moving speech came from a woman whose husband was killed in Iraq. Not only did she purchase and dedicate a bench in the park (her husband was a volunteer firefighter and SAR) but she spoke passionately about the job done by emergency services personnel.
It was a good day for the EMS, fire and police personnel in Kennebunk, Maine.
