Every year I pull out the baseball looking card with Tommy's picture of the front and the fireman's prayer on the back and am reminded how much this one day changed my life.
You see..I was a senior at West Point on that day and happened to be eating dinner at Applebee's a few nights later while an older man, with his blues on, clearly coming from a funeral was finishing his meal with his wife. We picked up his tab and he came over and talked to us about who we were and what our plans were. He said we reminded him of Tommy with that fire in our eyes and handed us that card.
Over the last 12 years I have flown in Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan with that card tucked in my kneeboard to remind me..."For Tommy".
Let us never forget...

What a beautiful and extremely emotionally-moving story. Thank you and God Bless You for serving our Great Nation. We must never forget. Our Heroes like you, Tommy, and all of the 9/11 Fallen will never be forgotten.
~~~GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA~~~
