I am a NY State Court Officer Lt. stationed in lower Manhattan. On 9-11-01 (as a Sgt.) I supervised a squad of Court Officers who responded to the WTC from our court house approx. ten blocks away. In the course of the rescue operations, 2 of my officers were killed. They were Senior Court Officers Thomas Jurgens and Mitchel Wallace. In addition, a Captain from our training academy was also killed. Capt. William Harry Thompson. The bracelet I ordered is in tribute to officer Jurgens, who was the youngest in the squad.
