Dressed in full firefighter bunker gear, and a hose over my shoulders, Scott and the 542 other firefighters that have died on or since 9/11 were in my mind and my heart. I know they gave me the strength to climb today, and I nor anybody else will ever be able to explain how thankful we truly are to Scott and everyone else who sacrificed their lives doing their duty to act to save other people.

  17. I had the privilege of climbing for Scott Andrew Larsen on the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field, 2023. The 343 Firefighters who lost their lives will never be forgotten, they and their families, made the ultimate sacrifice. Sending love and prayers to the family of this hero. Thank you Scott and family for choosing a life of service. May we all remember What Barack Obama stated, “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” I am proud to never forget Scott, a selfless and brave hero that sacrificed his life for the safety of others and his Country.

  18. I was at a memorial when I pulled Scott Larsen’s name and information from a box. Roger and Carol Whitford lost their son, Mark Whitford on 9/11. They have a 9/11 memorial open to all in their front yard. As a way to never forget their son and other heroes they hold a ceremony every year on 9/11. It struck me that I was a year older than Scott was when he fell. I wish he got to meet his fourth child. Thank you for your sacrifice Scott and the Larsen family.
