To Remember My Contribution at Ground Zero

I have been in the communications business for over 25 years (13 years Air Force). I had the distinct Honor and Privilege to respond to the destruction that happen to the Cellular communications system with the harrows that befell the World Trade Centers. I traveled with 7 other guys from my company towing 4 portable Cell sites from Phoenix AZ to a staging area outside of Manhattan. Myself and three other company guys were tasked to go in to Manhattan and help deploy microwave point-to-point communication systems to help bring the Wireless phone system back on line.

Although we spent only a week working in and around Ground Zero it had a tremendous effect on all of us; or contribution was every small in the scope of things but it is the proudest moment in my professional life. I have been looking something to wear other than the shirts I have support the FD and your bracelet has provide me with that.

My oldest son's uncle, U.S. Marine Sgt. Dennis M. Orbino, was KIA in Vietnam on 25Mar69. I purchased a bracelet for my son for Christmas last year(2007) to ensure that Dennis and his ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten. Dennis may not have lived to see his nephew born but my faith tells me that he has always been with him. I have no doubt that Dennis will be at his final duty outside heaven's gates when we arrive to greet us all. Semper Fi
