Lufkin Fire established an Honor Guard in 2011 to provide a service to the community and to honor fallen firefighters. The guard participates in ceremonies providing casket watches for fallen firefighters, escorting family members of fallen firefighters and first responders, posting of colors at various events, displaying colors during parades, and providing a variety of other services to the community upon request. Honor Guards were established to stand watch over fallen firefighters. The bodies of firefighters that have paid the ultimate sacrifice and died in “The line of duty” are under guard and not left alone until burial. It is with great pride and honor that we can provide this service. Our dedicated members are Captain Dustin Ledford, Captain Bill Wafer, Captain Duane Turner, Captain Brad Ehrlich, Captain Ozzie Jarman, Lieutenant Joe Burton, Lieutenant John Rawls, Lieutenant Jeff Barker, Firefighter Dillon Millender, Firefighter Desmond Garcia, Firefighter Joe Clark, and Firefighter Mack Grace.
