The Seattle Firefighters Pipes & Drums had the sad honor of playing 18 year old Andrew (Andy) Palmer, of Port Townsend, memorial service . Andy was assigned to an engine crew at the Olympic National Park in Port Angeles, Wa. He was killed on his first wildland fire deployment in California on July 25, 2008. Friends and family emphasized Andy’s kindness and have set up an Andy Palmer Kindness Scholarship for future students who represent the kindness that Andy displayed in his short life. Donations may be sent to the Foundation at 538 Calhoun Street, Port Townsend, WA 98368.
