MOHAWK, N.Y. --- The Village of Mohawk Fire Department decided they were going to hold a parade to honor those who gave their lives for our country.
Members of the Mohawk and German Flatts Fire Department drove around the area's neighborhoods waving to those on the streets. Many residents were waving flags as the trucks went by.
Current member of the Mohawk Fire Auxiliary Sue Harrod said the village always finds a way to bring the community together.
"I don't think you could have asked for a more awesome group of men and women. They just did this on their own, nobody asked them to do it. This is what they do, they're very active in the community. I know most of them and being a fire auxiliary member again this is what they do. Nobody asked them to do this, they just did it on their own," said Harrod.
