Port Authority Memorial Quilt
Jeannie Ammerman ~ President
Team Leader ~ Andrea Bair
The Port Authority Quilt tells the story of 36 men
and 1 woman, Captain Kathy Mazza, who became heroes on a day like no other in
our nation's history. Following the attacks on the Twin Towers, these heroes
willingly reported for duty at a disaster scene of unprecedented magnitude.
Many of them, like Superintendent Fred Monroe, did not need to respond
directly to the scene. Like the two Captains who gave their lives that day,
Fred could have stayed behind at the command center. But, they all knew that
the Port Authority was the largest single tenant of the Twin Towers. They all
knew that many of their friends and colleagues were trapped in stairwells, or
in elevators or in offices. And from the start of their careers in law
enforcement, all 37 of them knew the day might come when fate required them to
make the ultimate sacrifice. That so many people made it our of the Towers
alive is a testament to their dedication, courage and humanity."
"AMERICAN HAS COME TO KNOW YOUR
DEPARTED LOVED ONES AS NATIONAL HEROES."
