Air Medical Memorial - Memorial Lights, Colorado

Start Date: 07/26/2019


We were invited back to support attendees at the 2019 Air Medical Memorial Service. Every year, hundreds of thousands of air medical missions are flown in the United States. These missions provide expedited life-saving care to sick or injured patients when seconds count and at a moments notice. Sadly, these crews do not always return. This memorial honors those individuals who took on the mission in the name of saving lives, but lost their lives in the process. The Air Medical Memorial is the only national memorial recognizing all air medical losses and the only memorial dedicated to recognizing the sacrifice of more than 400 air medical crew members. On Friday night the Memorial Lights recognizes each sacrifice given to Air Medical Services since the early 1970's. A candle representing each honoree will be placed by hand, starting at sunset at the Memorial Site. This is always a very emotional and touching ceremony for those who have lost loved ones. We see many of the same families every year who want to continue to remember their loved ones. They travel from all over the US and Nationally.
