Carry On Honor Log presented to
Blue Ash Fire Department
The Blue Ash Fire Department (BAFD) has been awarded the distinction of housing the Ohio Honor Log, which is designed to honor the sacrifice of the nation’s fallen heroes. 

The Honor Log, provided by Carry On, is a beautifully carved piece of lumber by artist Cameron Dockery. It was designed with the following symbolism:

  • 7’ long represents the average length of a casket.
  • 22” in diameter to raise awareness of 22 veteran suicides per day.
  • 6 personnel to carry the log representing pallbearers.
  • Unique artistic designs specific to the fallen heroes of each state.

The Honor Log is now on display at the Blue Ash Recreation Center. Read more.
