I wanted to take the time to thank any member who served this country, any member who has worn a uniform, any member who has served both family and their community. any member who is an American and is thankful for it instead of complaining. Tomorrow I visit my brothers and the memories of those who have died 9/11 and post 9/11 and continue to die. Itís in the hundreds so far and continuing including many more I knew and worked with. A year after 9/11 I was appointed a trustee in the UFA and served another 14 years. It was a total honor to hold that position for many years. My career ended after failing an FDNY medical from lung disease and was forced to retired under the World Trade Center bill. My dad was one of the last competitively tested chiefs of dept in the FDNY since 1865 to hold that rank. He was also a United States marine and a nypd police officer, and son of an NYPD police officer who was appointed in 1922 and died of a leg wound. After becoming chief of Dept, heretired after 45 years of uniformed service, I did 32.5 . We have had eight relations in NYC in the military, police and FDNY since 1922.
Besides being proud of who I am and what Iíve come from. I ask every one of you guys to stand up for being an American tomorrow. Be proud of being an American, your heritage, your family dedication, love and honor. Stand tall to traitors like these bags of sh#t occasia or what ever her foreign name is and the Muslim traitors of Congress and the rest who ever their names are.
Be proud GTT brothers, politics aside, tomorrow is 9/11, never forget
