On Wed., June 17, representatives from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization begun in memory of a fallen 9/11 firefighter, will pay a special visit to Deuce Taylor of Bob Taylor’s Inc. to personally thank him for their generous support of the Foundation’s Building for America’s Bravest (BFAB) program.

The BFAB program builds hi-tech “smart homes” for service members returning from war who have been catastrophically injured.

In recognition of that support, on Wednesday, June 17 members of the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City)—acting on their own initiative, as ambassadors of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation—will present a specially-designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero to Deuce Taylor.

“We are truly humbled and honored that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and members of the FDNY—who were actually at Ground Zero on 9/11 and during its aftermath—are travelling all the way from their home base to visit us and express their gratitude to us,” said Deuce Taylor. “In fact, we are the ones who are thankful to them for their dedication and service. That is why we are so thrilled to be part of this impactful program that helps military heroes who have sustained the most devastating injuries.”
