Lt. Ray Murphy going back in after the first collapse. He didn't return.


They went in when others were running out.Why?

Because they are Firefighters.


Let us never forget them nor what they did.

It was the largest rescue in the history of The Fire Service.


Page down after all photos load and the music starts.

This may take as long as 343 seconds.

Just long enough for a short prayer.

We little knew that morning,

God would call your name;

In life we loved you dearly,

In death we do the same.

It broke or hearts to lose you,

You did not go alone;

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,

Your love is still our guide;

And though we can not see you,

You are always by our side.

Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same;

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.

We love you and will never forget you our Brothers.
