This organization, along with thousands of others across the U.S., made a decision to honor the memory of their lost FDNY brothers by adding the 9/11 Tribute Patch to their uniforms. Some participated in the project by purchasing their patches years ago--while others, are still learning about the project and coming on board nearly 10-years later.
The 9/11 Patch Project's 10-Yr 9/11 Manhattan to Manhattan Tour is now in Illinois and will be visiting the following organizations:
- June 9: Bloomington Firefighters, IL
- June 10: Decatur Firefighters, IL
- June 13: Springfield Firefighters, IL
- June 14: Peoria Firefighters, IL
- June 15: Aurora Firefighters, IL
- June 18: Village of Manhattan Police & Firefighters, IL
- June 23: Davenport Firefighters, IA
- June 25-26: Rockford Firefighters, IL
- June 28: Chicago Firefighters, IL
We also hope that if you are on the fence about whether of not to participate by wearing any of the 9/11 Patches or displaying any of the decals, the 10 Year Anniversary of 9/11 is only a couple of months ahead and a great time to make your move. Get your patches and decals now at: 9/11 Patch Project.
