On September 11, 2001, the Port Authority family lost 84 of its members in the attacks on the World Trade Center. This roll call of names bears witness to the countless acts of heroism and bravery demonstrated by our fallen colleagues, many of whom directed the greatest rescue in U.S. history before they made the ultimate sacrifice. Although they have passed, they will remain forever in our hearts.
