About 1,200 people gathered Wednesday morning to honor two men who spent the past two-and-a-half years helping in emergencies throughout Indianapolis.

A mix of family, friends and police and emergency crews attended a memorial for Pvt. Timothy McCormick, 24, and Spc. Cody Medley, 22, who suffered fatal injuries Saturday when their ambulance was struck by a car.

Private memorials for the families of McCormick and Medley were planned and took place throughout the week. Wednesday’s ceremony, which started with a procession that began at Indianapolis EMS headquarters and ended with a memorial ceremony at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University, was a chance for the public to honor both men.
