September 11 Memorial

Here are a few images from the September 11 Memorial held today in Fortuna. I had the pleasure of driving a rather distinguished veteran in the parade. Gordon and his wife Lucille are two wonderful people that you simply cannot help but like. Gordon is a WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Veteran, as well as a former POW in Germany during WWII. Gordon will be the subject of a future blog, so stay tuned. If you have not been to this memorial, I would strongly suggest that you go. Next year it should be on Saturday, and is an event that will remind you of the sacrifices our firefighters and police sometimes have to make. All of the area Fire Departments are represented, and I really would like to thank them for their service and the work they do. I think it was 343 firefighters that were lost that day eight years ago, and they all died running towards the buildings, or in them. Don't forget to thank a Fireman, a Policeman or a Veteran for their services. It makes all the difference in the world.

Gordon and Lucille.

Enjoy, Dave
