On 9/11, We Honor 16 Years of Service and Sacrifice

September 08, 2017

Sixteen years.

It’s incredible to think that so many years have passed since September 11, 2001. It was a day that revealed to us the worst of humanity — and the very best that our nation has to offer.

When we reflect on 9/11, we remember the lives that were lost. We also remember the courage, selflessness and service that were on full display that day and on so many others that followed.

The crew at Fire Department Coffee is made up of both firefighters and military veterans. It’s given us the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the finest men and women ever to wear a uniform.

Some of them answered the call on September 11, 2001. Many more joined the fire service or the military in the months and years that followed.

Today, we honor them all. Today, we raise our mugs to true heroes.
