Solo Bagpiper Reflects on a Loss
The Cincinnati Fire Department lost one of their own while battling a structure fire late one evening in March. As a traditional fireman's funeral goes, thousands of firefighters from all over the US and even other countries came to Cincinnati to pay their respects. Dozens of bagpipe players and drummers lined the streets to lead the fallen firefighter home.
