GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The U.S. Honor Flag organization works to make sure first responders killed in the line of duty are honored for their service, and they stopped by Grand Junction Fire Department Station 1.
The department hasn't seen any casualties, but they are glad someone has their back if tragedy ever struck. The flag stands to remember fallen first responders, and the people that move it around the country have given their lives to the cause.
Cynthia Heisler and her husband Chris travel all over the country, just to present the flag, and give closure to families and agencies that lose a first responder.
"It's not about us, but we talk about first responders, and we talk about heroes, and we talk about integrity. And freedom isn't free. We have heroes every day that pay the ultimate sacrifice, and that's what that flag represents. That service and that sacrifice," Cynthia Heisler said.
