It's a tool to educate America’s youth about that historic day.
The Siller Family started the Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory and carry on the legacy of their brother, Stephen, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001, after strapping 60 lbs. of gear to his back and rushing on foot through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.
In 2013, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation created a mobile exhibit as a tribute to all who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit is a tool to educate America and its youth about the historic events of that day. Welcomed around the country in cities like Dubuque, Iowa, Sturgis, South Dakota, Tampa, Florida, and Waseca, Minnesota, the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit – a high-tech, 53-foot tractor-trailer, which unfolds into a 1,100 square foot exhibit, serves as a poignant reminder of that tragic day.
The memorial provides interactive education; including artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, recordings of first responder radio transmissions, and live tours by FDNY firefighters. Entrance into the exhibit is always free of charge and accessible.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is committed to ensuring WE NEVER FORGET.
Kenneth Wasley, Founder of Children of Fallen Heroes was able to visit the 9/11 Mobile NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit at the NC July 4th Festival, Southport. There I was able to listen to the history of the exhibit by an amazing speaker Billy Puckett and Nancy Gass. Nancy and I shared a common bond that we are both family members of the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg, NC. She and her two children was one of the first Gold Star families to receive a mortgage free house provided by Tunnel to Towers.
Fragments of steel and glass from the Twin Towers. As I held the piece of glass I was reminded of when losing a loved one that life becomes a shattered glass, you will never be able to put it back together again. However, LET US DO GOOD and NEVER FORGET as inspired by the Stiller family. They are changing lives and strengthening our communities.
Please take your children to the amazing mobile exhibit so they will have a deeper appreciation for our First Responders the Military and their families.
