After 9/11 many of us within our own dept in Connecticut had a tattoo designed from our dept patch. It became more of a Brotherhood thing. Several guys within the dept got this tattoo. I really never planned on ever getting a tattoo for myself. But of course my Brothers on the job talked me into it. Today I'm kind of glad I did it because I guess the job meant so much to me.
For me it was an Honor to be a part of that team and to get that tattoo. I hope that the younger members now on the job there will continue to get that tattoo as a symbol of our Brotherhood too.
