A tribute and salute to the guys at Firehouse 10 in NYC.

On August 17, 2007, at about 11:15 pm, a couple firefighters doing maintenance on the outside of their station were kind enough to escort me inside their station to view their memorial at Firehouse 10. “House 10” as they call it, is literally 40 feet across the street from the former Twin Towers and was obviously among the very first to respond. To all those in the past and future who sacrifice to protect and serve our communities, small towns, big cities and country, thanks. The caption reads, “Ten House Bravest.”

Note: the firefighters were very clear that I could not take a photo of the memorial with me or anyone “in the picture.” It could only be of the memorial itself.
