    9/11

    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

    Thank you to you and your family for your service also, Firemark.

    Tomorrow at 1800 the ceremony will begin to remember all who were lost on 9/11 and who have been lost since from the after effects and those in the military who died fighting the Global War on Terror. The ceremony will be at a local park built by the mother of a 25 year old young man who had just started a job in the WTC. It is a beautiful memorial. I believe that I have posted pictures previously on here. The keynote speaker tomorrow will be a retired US Army Colonel who was in the attack on the Pentagon. He was in the D ring, second floor. The American Legion and VFW provide the Color Guard, the Boy Scouts lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. I wear my uniform which makes me feel 15 or 20 years younger for a couple hours. I'll do it as long as I am able to preserve the memory of 9/11.

    If you have the opportunity to attend a ceremony, please do. If any of you live in northeast Pennsylvania or the Binghamton, New York area, come to the South Montrose memorial park. You won't be sorry that you attended.

    Thank you for your service Don, and your wonderful and moving statements. When I came on the job, all the senior guys were Vietnam vets. They were ass kicking fireman during what all us new and young guys learned were the “war years” of the dept. company’s doing 9,000 runs a year with heavy heavy fire duty. They were the most respected men in the dept, and the NYPD too. So thank you for your service providing dignity honor and service to a country that never thanked you at that time. Well everyone of my guys, still thanks you. God bless tomorrow and have a good day with good thoughts in your heart and soul.

    While I am not a policeman/Fireman/EMT, I am an automotive/heavy truck mechanic who works for the govt entity that owns the WTC site so unfortunately/fortunately, I spent more time there from 9/11 onward then I'd like to admit. And I have met dozens upon dozens of your fellow brothers in uniform. They are all amazing people who run towards danger, while safeguarding everyone thats running out.

    We lost over 80 fellow employees that day, including 37 PAPD Police officers, and Sirius, a Police K-9.

    I wish I could relay more facts about that fateful day and afterwards but it is still a memory of which I try to keep pushed into the back of my head, but this time of year always brings it back as if it were yesterday..... so I will leave you with my wishes that your lung condition does not get any worse (I do hope you are being monitored by the WTC Registery at Rutgers/Princeton and if you arent, please do so. https://eohsi.rutgers.edu/centers/wo...ealth-program/

    Godspeed to you and your family and, thank you for your service.

    There is, and always be a special place in my heart for the NY Firemen because of the unselfish service that they and others provided after the Murrah bombing. I was very impressed at that time, and I was proud that Oklahoma was able to send firemen after 911. I have ever since regarded NY as a sister city, and their firemen as special friends. Both my brothers are retired fireman; I am the black sheep who went to law school.

    Firemark--no retired firemen or police -just military in my family. Flight 93 is just 10 miles from my house. i pushed dirt right across the road from the entrance to it. both places had coal underneath of the ground there. the federal government had to have the ground across the road from flight 93-so we had to finish back filling the job that summer-hrs was of no concern at that time. sometimes i just slept a few hrs in the dozer-daylight came in and they would wake me up then, go for coffee-and then i ran that day, repeat till next morning till i got too sleepy. after a couple of days-i would come home to shower, get a fresh bucket and coffee and go back then. we finished in time that summer-even after i swamped the d11 at 3 am one morning

    it has really grown at the flight 93 area-all kind of stuff built their now. was up there a few yrs ago--and they made us sit so thumping far away u couldn't see-or really hear what they was saying-so i just watch it on our local channel now--u can see and hear wonderfully.

    3 more hrs i can start watching it here on tv.

    thanks to u and ur entire family for all there service plus urs too.

    It's not just the 2977 people killed. They all had families that live on. All of the service people were just doing what they do without out much thought to their personal safety is amazing. All of the people that were injured, thousands. All of the firefighters, cops and medics that now live with health problems. Saying Thank You will never be enough.

    Any program or payment, whatever, will never be enough to say how much your work was and is needed and appreciated.
