Welles Remy Crowther made honorary NYC fireman

This morning I heard on the radio that Welles Remy Crowther has been named an honorary New York City fireman, in recognition of his heroism during the September 11 terrorist attacks. Welles was murdered on September 11, 2001. He was an equities trader on the South Tower's 104th floor, who helped dozens of people to safety on that catastrophic day. His body was found in March, 2002, alongside several firefighters and emergency workers bunched in a command post in the South Tower lobby. I was proud to honor Welles as part of the 2,996 Tribute on the fifth anniversary of 9-11.
