EMMITSBURG -- Hundreds gathered under a brilliant sky Sunday to honor firefighters from across the nation who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities.

Libertytown Volunteer Firefighter Michael Powers was one of those honored during the 40th annual National Fallen Firefighter Memorial Service. The engine he drove to his final alarm was parked in front of the memorial.

While COVID concerns kept the number of attendees down, it had no bearing on the tributes to the 210 fallen heroes.
