Respecting Our Fallen
The Gloucester Fire Department (GFD) Honor Guard was officially organized in 2002. The organization came about as a response to ensure that fallen firefighters and departed retired firefighters were given the honor and dignity they deserve at their funeral services. The GFD Honor Guard made its official debut at the Gloucester Veterans Day ceremony on November 11, 2002.
Honor Guard official list:
Mike Chipperini (Unit Commander)
