Call in to speak with the host
Few events in American History have the ability to freeze time. Americans who were alive will never forget where they were and what they where doing on Sunday, Dec 7, 1941, when they heard the news that the empire of Japan had attacked Peal Harbor hurling our nation into World War II.
Tuesday, Sept 11, 2001 is surely to be one of the defining moments of the 21st century. Millions of Americans watched their televisions in horror at terrorists used commercial airliners to attack the WORLD TRADE CENTER in New York City and the Pentagon in our nation's capital. Nearly 3,000 American lives were lost on that day.
Initially there was hope that survivors would be found under the twisted rubble of the World Trade Center. The rescue effort overwhelmed the F.D.N.Y. who lost many of their brothers and sisters when the towers went down.
Union Ironworkers throughout New York metropolitan area headed to "Ground Zero." They knew that no-one else in the world had the burning, welding and rigging skills necessary to handle a rescue effort in th mountain of iron, stainless steel and aluminum wreckage. Ironworkers put their own lives at risk in the effort to save live.
Ironworkers built the World Trade Center 30 years earlier and now they would take it apart..
Guests: Eric Dean, General Secretary of IronWorkers International.
