The names of two Grand Island firefighters were added to the granite memorial walls at the IAFF (International Association of Fire Fighters) Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, reports The Grand Island Independent.
The family of each honored firefighter receives a folded IAFF flag in a wooden case, with a plaque at the bottom.
Battalion Chief Bryan Stutzman and Capt. John Mayer, part of the delegation of Grand Island firefighters, presented the flags to Arnett and Pontious family members.
Mayer presented the flag to three of Arnett’s children. Stutzman presented the flag to two of Pontious’ children and his widow, who has since remarried.
