Marathon first responders honored by Navy

Tribute to brave in Boston Harbor

A wreath of blue and yellow flowers was tossed into Boston harbor from the deck of the USS Constitution on Tuesday morning to honor those killed and wounded in the Marathon bombing. As the wreath bobbed, a bell tolled three times in memory of the three people who died in the April 15 attack.

As the historic ship eased into the harbor’s calm waters, its deck was packed with close to 400 law enforcement and medical personnel from a myriad of agencies the US Navy was honoring with the trip aboard Old Ironsides.
