  5. Our volunteer fire department trained for this years Lambeau Field 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb together. As I climbed in our quiet home town I thought about what it must have been like to fight fires in the high rises of NYC – we have none in Manitowoc, WI. And I thought about what it would have been like that terrible day 16 years ago. We’d have all rushed to that scene to help in a heartbeat. We’re trained and we just want to help. It’s what makes Michael a hero.
    Each of us had a tear in our eye as we received the badge of a fallen firefighter. I was honored to ring the bell for Michael Vernon Kiefer.
