This Sept. 11 marked the sixth year since Americans watched in disbelief as passenger airplanes were used as weapons to fly into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field. America and most of the world held its breath as the realization came that terrorists piloted these planes, that thousands had died and that nothing was ever going to be the same for our country.
Although that day was one wrapped in tragedy, it was also a day that exemplified the true meaning of American hero. It was with that memory that Glendale firefighters and engineers joined together for a ceremony early Tuesday morning.
“You remember where you were and what you were doing,” Captain Ron Gulli said of that day. He, along with firefighters and engineers from Glendale station 29 on Honolulu Avenue, solemnly prepared for the recognition ceremony.
