President of FOP ~ Court
Officers Lodge #35
Lieutenant Frank Graniero
Graniero, head of FOP Lodge # 35 for the Court Officers, wanted to do something
for those officers that gave the ultimate sacrifice after 911.
He joined with a
Committee for the Office of the Court Administrator and produced a beautiful
memorial to the three officers, Captain William Thompson (known as Harry),
Sergeant Tommy Jurgens and Sergeant Mitch Wallace.
Below is a copy of the
memorial with the artists who painted it, the Rose Brothers. Their memorial now
stands inside the lobby of 111 Center Street for all to see and to remember
those who bravely gave their lives so others should live.
Many court officers bravely stood up
to terror that day and for days to come. You can read their stories and see
their photos in our upcoming book "HEROES OF THE WTC, NO GREATER LOVE". For
there is no greater love than to sacrifice your life for another.
