  9. Lincoln,

    I was honored today to carry your badge with me as I climbed in honor of you and all the other first responders who selflessly gave their lives that fateful day. You were a true hero, one of a kind. As I travel down the path of becoming a firefighter myself, I only hope that I can have the level of bravery and courage as you when I am tested and held to the flame. You will never be forgotten.

    Rest easy.

  16. Lincoln,

    I worked for Round Rock Fire in Texas as a training admin and during my 1st year with the fire department we held a 9/11 stair climb at the training center. Along with going up and down the tower to honor you all we also printed ya’lls pictures and hung them from the tower all while reading everyone’s names. As I was walking up, your picture fell in front of me and I picked you up and kept you at my desk. It has now been 5 years and I still have your picture at my desk at my current job with the State. I have considered you my guardian angel since then. Thank you for all you did! You are not forgotten!
