ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's flag and the American flag are being flown at half-staff in honor of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service taking place in the state.
Officials in Maryland joined President Barack Obama in ordering flags to fly at half-staff Sunday. That's when Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg is hosting the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.
The school is a short distance from the National Fallen Firefighters Monument which is located on the campus of the National Fire Academy, also in Emmitsburg. The names of firefighters who have died in the line of duty since 1981 are inscribed on plaques surrounding the monument. More than 3,500 names are listed.
