9/11 MEMORIAL CLIMB HELD TO HONOR LOST FIRST RESPONDERS
A Firefighter in full uniform and personal protection equipment climbs 110 flights of stairs in the Tower of The Americas to pay tribute to the 343 fallen firefighters and 70 Law enforcement and 9 Emergency Medical Personnel who lost their lives at ground zero on September 11, 2001. The equipment the firefighters wear can exceed more than 75 pounds. Two ascents of the towers equaled the height of the World Trade Center Towers. (U.S. Army photo by 1SG Timothy Lawn, 205th PCH)
