After a night in the 'Boro with my brothers we then attended the 9.11 Stair climb. Being firefighters, both of my brothers are participating again this year. They have both done the tribute climb in previous years, but are doing it this year together. Josh and Jon are on the Honor Guard and are in the opening ceremony for the climb. Then Josh is doing the climb carrying two NYFD men's pictures in honor. The ceremony is very somber and touching. It brings back many memories and thoughts of that horrible day in our Nation's history. I am very proud of the service my brothers give being firefighters. Their involvement in the memorial stair climb is just one example of the brotherhood that all firefighters share.
