I took a vacation to NY last month and walked up on Engine 54 Ladder 4 Battalion 9 Firehouse. "Pride of Midtown". I was standing there reading the names and looking at the pics of the firemen from that station that lost their lives on 911. very sad and humbling experience to say the least. The stuff that ran thru my mind while I was standing there by myself paying my respects was all over the place, I have to fight back emotions every time I look at the pics I took on my phone. While I was standing there the doors came open and Engine 54 and Ladder 4 came out going on a call. It never hit me till just a couple of days ago, but are these the same trucks that were at 911? Or did they replace them? Being from Texas I have always felt terrible for the people of NY and police and fireman for what they had to go thru that day and the many days after. But, it never really hit me hard till I went on the vacation and went to the memorial and to the little museum that was put together my family's of the victims, and then walked up on the firehouse and saw the faces.
