Recommended Posts

Never forget. :usa: Thanks Chief for keeping this thread going every year! So much has changed since that day but I will still never forget where I was.

Should have gone to bed a couple of hours ago since I have to fly to Chicago in the morning but I couldn't help but read the whole thread.

I went through and read quite a bit yesterday and today. You can tell this is an old thread, since somehow everyone's emoticons have converted to smiling ones, dancing pickles, and the like. :lol:

 

I can promise you those weren't there when those posts were written. I wonder if Big John can remove some of those. Obviously in board conversions something probably happened to the code associated with those.

Never Forget - it was almost 20 years ago now but still recall it clearly.

Thanks for bumping this again this year.  I think I said it in a previous post in this thread, but the memories of watching that day unfold are part of what inspired me to become a volunteer firefighter in my community.

 

343.  Never Forget.

I just went back and read some of the posts on the first couple of pages, those from the people in NYC or with family/friends there were bone chilling as ever. Chief's post about the reception they gave the Giants team as it came on the field was awesome.

 

And these were written 14 years ago, nearly 4 years after the event.
