    To all who served... We will remember. Whether it was at the site of the World Trade Center, the mountains of Afghanistan, or the deserts of Iraq.

    Semper Fi my brothers.

    All departments that responded (under a mutual aid plan, not freelancing) to the WTC received a piece of WTC steel in a shadowbox display. This doesn't just include departments directly to the site but also ones that backfilled other FDNY stations.

    FDNY Presents Marines With Steel Beam From WTC Site

    JULY 03RD, 2003

    New York's Bravest paid tribute to the Few and the Proud Thursday with a gift recovered from the World Trade Center site.

    In a ceremony held outside the New York Stock Exchange in Lower Manhattan this morning, Fire Department officials presented an 11 foot steel girder to members of the United States Marine Corps. The 3,000 pound gift honors the bravery displayed by the Marines in recent military action in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    The beam will journey down to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, where it will stand as part of a memorial to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

    "When these young Marines come onto this base for the next 100 years, they're going to see that Trade Center beam next to that Beirut memorial, and it’s going to make them understand why they joined the service in the first place. It's to protect this wonderful, free nation that we live in,” said retired Firefighter Joe Higgins of Ladder 111.

    “It's journey to many represents a kind of homecoming, as two organizations, one paramilitary and the other unquestionably military, are united by spirit, tradition, ideals and objectives," said Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta.

    Firefighters will escort the beam down to Lejeune, where the camp will hold a separate formal ceremony with more than 22,000 Marines and their families.
