Idaho Firefighters Represent the Fire Service at President Obama’s Inauguration today. Twenty of our Brothers from Boise, Meridian, Coeur d’Alene and Lewiston represent the Idaho Firefighter Pipes and Drums Corps. Chris Verkerk (Leatherhead Projects and bag piper) was with them in Washington D.C. today and told me about the trip a couple of weeks ago. He was pleased to be heading to such a large event…and to be picked from so far away. The video below shows them in action. The photos below are from Facebook. They got a little help from the Northern Virginia Firefighters Emerald Society Pipe Band (FB link) as well.
Great job guys! Thanks for representing!
“We were selected last Friday, I got a phone call out of the blue, that said, hey, you want to go to Washington D.C. and represent Idaho and be a part of history,” said Menlove.
