    We can never forget what happend on September 11, 2001. I participated in a motorcycle ride today called "Rattling the Runway" in rememberance of the 2 planes that left Dulles and crashed in PA and the Pentagon. The ride ended at the Pentagon where I searched the Memorial Garden until I found the bench for William (Baby) Ruth (HMM-363 Vietnam & Popasmoke Member) who was killed sitting at his desk. We lost another member at the WTC as a Battalion Fire Chief (JD - I can't remember his name, please help & edit this post).

    They survived VietNam only to be killed by some idiots with a twisted vision of Islam. We can never forget!!!

    Good Ride Larry ! We all can take it to heart for most that come to the site will always remember. had a cousin that was out there in DC to sight see and
    met many from all over the country. He said "its very emotional to see this whole place" He is a vet but never had gotten out there to see for his self.
    God Bless you all for being there.

      LZ,
      The Fire Fighter from New York that was killed at the World Trade Center was Battalion Chief Joe Grzelak. Although he wasn't a current member of the Association I decided to honor him anyway and we made a donation in his name as we did with Bill Ruth. I'm not sure what squadron he was with but will find out and post it.
