Hero's Last Call

Check out this organization that provides a unique honor guard for police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel who died in the line of duty. It provides a funeral escort to the cemetery of a glass-cased hearse drawn by six matching horses or, for the fallen firefighter, a replica antique ladder wagon drawn by the horses.

The organization is a 501(c) [501(c)(3)?] and welcomes all donations for the support of its services. The address for the organization is shown at the end of the video.

Let's hope we never have to invite this organization to McHenry County.
