Beavercreek Firefighters in NYC

Posted on Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 at 3:00 pm

On September 2, 2010 Beavercreek, Ohio firefighters, David Young and Brian Seabold, drove from Ohio to pick up the WTC steel at Hangar 17 that will be used in a 9/11 Memorial in their town.

They were both deployed to Ground Zero with Ohio Task Force One on September 11, 2001.  Firefighter, Brian Seabold had not returned since his work and recover efforts to search for the victims of the 9/11 attack on the WTC.
