View Full Version : 9/11 New York Firefighters last night C4

When I see the re-patriation flights on TV returning the fallen to the UK, I at times wonder if the battle against the Taliban etc is a price worth paying.

After watching last nights TV programme on C4 about the New York firefighters and what they went through on 9/11, it brought it home to me, it is.
The way these guys entered the towers knowing that it was most likely a one way trip, yet onward and upward they went, to try and bring out as many people as possible.
Many firefighters are still suffering emotionally today, nevertheless a great big 'Well Done' to the guys.:D

Did they all have the same type(s) of cancer ? The article didn't seem to say, or I missed it.

Not the same type of cancer but apparently all contracted as a result of the toxic environment
