A memorial has been unveiled at the site of The World Trade Center in recognition of the 343 FDNY firefighters who gave their lives so that others might live doing their duty on September 11th. The memorial is six-foot-high, 7,000-pounds and 56 feet long in length. The mural was funded through fundraising by Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation. The Rambusch Company built the mural. The memorial is attached to the side of the Engine 10 and Ladder 10 firehouse. Read the entire article for the whole story.
