Flag Raised at Ground Zero - Sept 11, 2001

In the chaos and rubble where the World Trade Center once stood, three firefighters,
Brooklyn-based firefighters Dan McWilliams, George Johnson (both from Ladder 157),
and Billy Eisengrein (Rescue 2) raise the American flag.

Standing defiantly against the gray and white landscape of devastation, these dust-covered
men and the vivid red, white, and blue of Old Glory instantly became a symbol of American
patriotism and also a global message that life, and America, would go on.
