We Remember the Heroes

This famous photo of John Pesce, left, helping a burned man to get away from the carnage on the streets of downtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001, with the assistance of a Port Authority officer, right., has been seen around the world. Our brother John was then a senior detective in the NYPD Detective Bureau’s Manhattan Wanted Apprehension Team. John is now a retired Detective-Investigator, and is our AOH South Florida State Organizer. John is disabled as a result of injuries he sustained that awful day. We salute our fellow Hibernian and all the first responders who acted so unselfishly and with such a sense of duty.
