Our own FDNY heroes, Engine Company 205 / Ladder Company 118 “Fire Under the Bridge”, lost 8 men on 9/11/01 including 6 who died together in their firetruck under the rubble. The photo of their recovered vehicle was one of the most poignant images of the attack’s aftermath.
Now more than ever, as some choose to use the images of that tragic day for partisan political purposes, we must remember that these men were something more than just names on a list. Yes, fate chose them to be heroes and they rose to that occasion but they were first and foremost our friends, husbands, boyfriends, fathers, sons, New Yorkers.
Please take a moment to remember our Brooklyn Heights Heroes:
