No matter if it is 1861 or 2001, the New York Fire Department has answered the call. People die for their country with pride and honor, before then, and now, and in the future. When Lincoln called for First Responders in 1861, the Fire Fighters of New York City stepped up. When the Towers were hit in 2001, again, the New York Fire Fighters stepped up. I know the job is often passed through families, so I am guessing that several present-day firefighters are related to those men of 1861. There is no end to the number of times a nation can say, "Thank you."
