NEVER FORGET SEPTEMBER 11. ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL.

Fr. Mychal Judge helmet;




Damaged helmets;









Below; Helmet worn by deceased proby member. I was part of the recovery team for this young man. His dad is a Chief. I had the honor of covering him with American Flag and carrying him in stokes basket from scene. Carrying this young man with me, on the otherside of the stokes was FF Bobby Beddia (E 24) who would be killed later at the Deutsch Building fire just a short distance away.




Helmet worn by BC Pfeiffer, first Chief on the scene:





Helmet worn by FF Bob Beckworth with President Bush;






FF Chris W. Ladder 5 helmet. Chris is seen carrying Father Judge in an iconic photo pointing to photographers, he is angry at the cameraman taking photos of the deceased Father Judge. ..... I replaced Chris as the Ladder 5 LCC after Chris transferred to work in the Division Office.




Lt. Mickey K. (E 16), one of 12 members to survive WTC 1 collapse in Stairway B. Mickey said as the crumbling tower was falling on top of him that he wanted "to make myself small and crawl into my helmet".




My Ladder 31 helmet that the 9/11 museum requested for display at opening of museum and was on loan for three years..this is the Museums photo used for Youtubes video about the museum. This lid is now home resting on my bureau.




Ladder 3 Captain Pat Browns helmet;




Lest we forget...
