Excerpts from ABC7Chicago.com:

More than two years after Chicago FD Captain Herbert “Herbie” Johnson was killed fighting a house fire, his family, friends, the fire commissioner, and the mayor gathered to honor his service and sacrifice by dedicating his badge. Captain Johnson died in November 2012.

The badge of the 30-year-plus CFD veteran was added to the Wall of Fallen Heroes Saturday afternoon. His joins 566 badges of other Chicago firefighters and paramedics killed in the line of duty.

“I was off. He was in my spot for that day. When I heard the news, I had the worst thought,” said firefighter Dan McAuliffe.

The dedication ended at Firefighters Memorial Park, where a brick was installed with Johnson’s name on it to symbolize his dedication, enthusiasm and passion, not only for the job and his family, but also for the city of Chicago.
