The U.S. Honor Flag is in South Florida Thursday morning.
U.S. Honor Flag founder Chris Heisler announced via Facebook Thursday morning that he and the Honor Flag had arrived in Jupiter. The flag will attend the Celebration of Life Service in honor of American Medical Responders Paul Besaw and Lahiri Garcia, who were killed in the line of duty last week in a crash in Jupiter.
According to a post on the American Medical Response Facebook page, "Lahiri and Paul were both devoted husbands and fathers. They dedicated their lives to caring for others. They were skilled, compassionate and fearless employees who embodied all of the qualities of an exemplary EMS provider."
The event is open and free to the public. The festivities take place beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday at Christ Fellowship Palm Beach Gardens, 5343 Northlake Blvd in Palm Beach Gardens.
Since September 2001, the United States Honor Flag has paid tribute to those who have lost their life in the line of duty and also those who currently serve our communities and our nation.
The Honor Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to memorializing those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for their family, community and country and also to foster education of the American public regarding those heroes and today’s heroes and their organizations including police, fire, and our nation’s military.
