Staff Sgt. Pierce Franklin, Fire Department - Sergeant Franklin had family in the Pentagon when the plane crashed into it, but that wasn’t the only thing he remembered about that day. “Being a fireman, I watched all the firemen walk into the towers that day and never come back down. I knew that they had made the ultimate sacrifice for people they didn’t even know, but that’s part of the job. It’s more a calling really.” (Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Krystal Tomlin)
