John Hammack, a fallen firefighter from Madras, is one of the 107 fallen firefighters to be honored at the 2014 National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service this Sunday.
"Every year we bring the fire service, the families, the survivers together, in what has become a weekend of remembrance, and honor with flags, songs, and prayer," says Tom Olshanki, the public affairs director for the memorial service.
John Hammack died in the summer of 2013.
He was struck and killed while clearing hazardous trees in the Deschutes National Forest.
He and another man, Norman Crowford from Sisters, responded to the lightening-prompted incident.
Hammack was 58.
