REMA is the Retired Emergency Man's Association.
It was created to keep people in touch with others
who were assigned to, or had a connection with,
the NYPD Emergency Service Unit.
Each year REMA holds an annual "Day of Remembrance"
to show respect for and to pay homage to those
members of ESU who have died in the line of duty
since the unit was started in April, 1930.
Here are some photos from this years event.
