Thursday, June 2, 2011 - 8:44am

Two firefighters hung up their fireman's hat in a retirement ceremony in McAllen on Wednesday.

The men have been fighting fires in McAllen for more than 25 years and the fire department held a flag raising ceremony to honor them. The firefighters took a final ride in a fire truck. Over the years the men say they've seen their share of incidents in the Valley, but now it's time for new firefighters to take over. The retired men got to keep their flags as a keepsake and the new firefighters say both men were role models.
