At FDNY Engine 1/Ladder 24. The memorial that includes Father Mychal Judge whose church is across the street, and items sent from all over the country to the FDNY. This station lost 3 firefighters plus Father Mike.
This was sent at 09:59 12 years to the minute the South Tower collapsed. The North Tower collapsed at 10:28.
While these photos have been of New York City don’t forget the brave men and women in Washington D.C at the Pentagon that was struck at 09:37 and the brave souls aboard Flight 93 who forced the plane to crash in an open field in Shanksville PA.
Anyone and everyone associated with this tragedy is a true American hero.
