Never Forget

The International Association of Fire Fighters General President Harold Schaitberger issued this statement following President Obama’s announcement that Osama bin Laden was killed.

“The nation’s fire fighters and paramedics are grateful to President Obama, our intelligence agencies and the U.S. military forces, including the Navy SEALS who carried out the mission, for providing some peace to the families of those who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. We will always remember the 343 members of the FDNY who lost their lives responding that day and continue to think of and assist those still suffering the incredible health effects from working at Ground Zero and the Pentagon. We will never forget their sacrifice. This is a proud moment for America.”

The death of Bin Laden does not undo the events of September 11, 2001, but hopefully this will bring a sense of peace and justice to the families of those we lost.

May we never forget.
