i would love one of those patches also,ill look on ebay, i was sent to ny 4 days after the atacks to help with ems for ny. we were to go to the ground zero and set up. we were given a radio and told from the lt that we were number 143bls and that they would call us by that whn we had a call. after we got the rig set in place and we got everything in place we let the lt know that we were ready. right after we let them know that we were ready we had a fire fighter get hurt on the pile. he broke his leg and wanted us to fix it right there on the pile. they all were like that, no of them wanted to leave. but we had to take him to the hosp. his let was broken. they helped us to find the way to the hops. after that we went back to ground zero. we ran ems in town and helped the f/f from ground zero. we spent 4 days living out of our amb and taking calls. we would have stayed longer but everyone had to get back to work and back to family. but i was changed forever. i coughed non stop for 6 months but the memory was unbelievable. i couldn't sleep for weeks. the sight of what i saw and the smell and the non stop of the guys on the pile was amazing. too this day i am very angry at what happened and that was the only way i knew how to do something with my anger. we were the only people from our squad that went and that was very special to me. our group never got recognized by the township or anyone for going but we didn't go for recognition, we went for ourselves. but i would love to get a patch that would be great. so if anyone can help i would appreciated.

Ill bet it does. Sometimes it just doesnt matter how big we are or what we can "lift"...There are just those things that will always "weigh us down">>>Prayers are with you and your family bro...always!
