The Annual Air Medical Memorial was held on July 28th, 2018. The ceremony this year was held at a alternate location due to construction near the memorial site, which was at the Heritage United Methodist Church, 7077 S. Simms St. in Littleton. The ceremony honored the lives of sixteen air medical crew members lost in the line of duty in 2017. The ceremony started with the Remembrance Ceremony opening by Steven Sweeney (Air Medical Memorial Co-founder), Invocation by Betsy Phelan (Chaplain, Flight for Life Colorado), presentation of Colors by the PHI Air Medical Honor Guard, keynote address by Christina Gasparich (Director, Behind the Wings Family Support Network), “Never Forget” by Greg Hildenbrand, Reading of the Honoree names by Christina Gasparich, Mike West of the Emerald Society Pipes and Drums with “Hector the Hero”, and moment of silence followed by the ending prayer by Betsy Phelan. Due to the weather, there was no helicopter fly-in this year.
