13 Children of Fallen 9/11 Firefighters Are Joining The NYFD
Fallen 9/11 firefighters live on through their remarkable children.
The legacies of several fallen 9/11 firefighters live on.
13 new firefighters for the New York Fire Department have firefighting in their blood.
They have a connection to the work and the department unlike any other.
13 grown children of fallen 9/11 firefighters are set to join the department.
A New Generation of Heroes
The 12 men and one woman are set to graduate in two weeks.
FDNY spokesman Jim Long told the post other legacy firefighters are already part of the company, but this graduating class has more than any other.
NYFD Commissioner Daniel Nigro told The Post, “Bravery runs in these extraordinary families who have sacrificed so much for our city. I’m proud of the commitment these ‘probies’ have already demonstrated to the department and look forward to celebrating with them at their graduation.”
The Incredible Asaro Family
NBC News reports the Asaro Family will soon have four of their six kids serving as members of the department.
Father Carl died on 9/11.
Sons Carl and Matthew are already working in the department.
Son, Mark, and daughter, Rebecca, are part of the class set to graduate in two weeks.
This makes their mother, Carl’s widow, Heloisa, the unsung hero. How does she support her children’s career choice given how she lost her husband.
Like the incredible mother that she is. Doing what’s best to support them and their call to serve.
She told NBC News, “For me not showing that I’m afraid for them, they can do a better job. They can really be strong.”
Thank you, Asaro Family, for all that you have sacrificed and all that you continue to give.
