Remembering those lives lost during that fateful day. Thank you to all of those who served and continue to serve protecting our great country and the people who enjoy the freedom it offers!
Please remember today is a National Day of Service and to volunteer for those organizations that help those in need! Do something good for others and our military that defends the lives lost during the 911 attacks.

Blair is a firefighter with the 507th Civil Engineer Squadron. Reservists from the CES and 507th ARW took turns carrying the flag up and down the equivalent of 110 stories to commemorate the 343 firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers.
