Houston firefighters who died in the line of duty are being honored by others who serve. The annual memorial service was held Saturday at the Houston Firefighters Memorial Garden in northeast Houston. Sixty-three Houston firefighters have died in the line of duty.

Congressman Gene Green says honoring the fallen firefighters is extra special to him.

"My grandfather and two of my uncles are Houston firefighters and their names are on that wall," said Green.

The ceremony not only remembers those who died in the line of duty, but others who are gone but not forgotten.
