Before we get to the list, this publication wishes to express gratitude beyond words for our United States Armed Services members, Police Officers, Firemen, Paramedics, Emergency Management workers, and those in the private sector who served that day in a Public Safety capacity. Whether or not you are full time, auxillary, paid or volunteer. You all mean a lot to the citizens of the U.S.!!
Whether in time of peace or war, you are valuable and you are remembered each and every day. The families who have lost loved ones on that day are just as valuable, and YOU are remembered!!
