As we approach the anniversary of 9/11, I can’t help but think that there will be a generation that might not know what that date represents. It was a horrible day in our history when 2,977 people died from a terrorist attack on our own soil.

First responders and rescuers rushed to save lives in both towers that collapsed during their rescue efforts claiming the lives of 343 FDNY firefighters, 37 NYPD officers, 23 Port Authority officers and two paramedics.

Our nation was changed forever on 9/11/2001. Since 9/11 our military has been fighting terrorism oversees on many battlefields and they, too, have suffered greatly, losing over 4000 of our fine men and women in combat. We made a vow Advertisement

that day, "Never to Forget."

Fallbrook firefighters are hosting their fourth annual 9/11 Memorial Hill Climb to honor the memories of those who lost their lives that tragic day and honor the sacrifice made by those who gave it their all.

With the help of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, the hike will utilize Monserate Mountain which provides 1500 feet of elevation gain to simulate the height of the twin towers.

Funds raised from the hike are donated to the National Fallen Firefighter’s Foundation and Homes for Our Troops. Please join us on Saturday, Sept. 13 for this year’s 9-11 Memorial Hike.

To register for the hike or to donate to help support this event, go to Fallbrookfirefighters.org or email johnschoi@gmail.com.
