In the firefighter brotherhood--the loss of their fellow men and women will always be with them. But some have one extra reminder to look at everyday. Former New Yorker and now a Tallahassee firefighter, Anthony Espinosa is branded with a lasting symbol.

Like other's who honor the 9/11 firefighters, Espinosa has the classic maltese cross with the number of firefighters who died on that day. And he is proud to remind everyone to never forget the 349 firefighters who died.

"It's near to my heart and it's my livelihood and it's something I want to remember, remember the guys that gave the ultimate sacrifice up in New York helping people. You know, helping save their lives." said Espinosa.

Espinosa has been a Tallahassee firefighter since 2007 and shortly before that he worked in retail in New York City--and he remembers being there on September 11, 2001.
