9-11 2007, under the guidon flag is the photo of Sergeant Mike's men holding the Port Authority flag and the Ladder 20 t shirt from 9-11 2006- last thing the firefighters see before they leave the fire house.
Today the guidon flag is still in the kitchen of Ladder 20, immediately to the right as you go out the door. And now there is also a smaller photo of me and my men in Afghanistan on September 11, 2006 with the Port Authority flag as well.
That’s the level of unity between the FDNY firefighters and the Army. I literally showed up on their doorstep one day out of the blue and they took me in like one of their own even though I was a total stranger."
