9/11 memorial at Seaford Fire Department 2013

At 6:30 a.m. on September 11, 2013, the Seaford Fire Department dedicated this monument ourside the firehouse on Southard Avenue.  The monument includes a fountain, two pieces of twisted steel from the World Trade Center, a bench, and plantings.

Fire Commissioner George Von Glahn led the ceremony, introducing guests, and also explaining the history of the construction of the memorial and its design by Seaford residents.  Chaplain Msgr. Steve Camp gave the invocation, words of encouragement ("We are stronger than steel"), and the blessing. The police pipe band vigorously offered a series of patriotic and meaningful pieces, including the U.S. Army song, "Over There," "Anchors Away," the Marines' Hymn, Amazing Grace, America the Beautiful, and "You're a Grand Old Flag."
