BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Mar 13, 2016
Hi, this year im travelling from Australia to honour a fallen brother Michael Behette from ladder 172. I have a fantastic group of friends from Bayridge whom i visit. Micheal suffered as a result of 9/11. Although it didnt take his life that day, he worked tirelessly to search for the victims trapped beneath the rubble of the world trade centres. Micheal did not faulter in his loyalty and attempts to rescue those trapped. He came from his vacation the moment the news of the attacks happened and did not leave that site until the very end. He lived his life, caring and making others feel safe and welcomed. I had the honour to know him, introduced by a mutual friend Mr John Bennett. We spoke as work colleagues and fire fighting brothers. I knew and he knew full well he was very ill. He emplored me to take care and keep safe, no matter were we serve its all the same risk. I will represent his memory on the 13th of march 2016...carrying his spirit to the top of world trade centre 4. My honour...my privilege....He Deserves it.!!!
