FDNY Fathers and Sons: Interview, Part 2
Loss unites these FDNY firefighters whose fathers or sons were killed on 9/11 - but so, too, does hope for the FDNY's future
Published Tuesday, August 23, 2011
The FDNY has a long history of multiple generations of the same family serving at the same time. On 9/11, this tradition took a tragic turn; many FDNY firefighters lost family members who also responded to the incident. To mark the 10-year anniversary of September 11, FireRescue Editor-in-Chief Tim Sendelbach interviewed FDNY firefighters whose sons or fathers were killed on 9/11. In Part 2 of this four-part series, four FDNY fathers whose sons were killed on 9/11 discuss how the department reacted after 9/11, and how they felt when Osama bin Laden was killed.
