  1. I was proud to cary a badge with Mr. Siller’s name on our military bases memorial stair climb. I can not imagine the pain that his wife, children, family and friends have endured in the years. I do hope it brings some happiness to know that his name was remembered as far away as Misawa Japan. Thank you for your selfless sacrifice and I wish for peace for your family Mr. Siller

  13. My name is Eli Thompson and I am 10 years old. Today I climbed for Stephen in the FDIC 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb. It was tiring and my legs and feet hurt when I finished. I prayed for Stephen and asked him to watch over me and I prayed for your family. I wasn’t alive when the towers fell but I know about that day from the Tunnel to Towers Mobile Exhibit and the heroes that travel to share the stories. God bless you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  16. My town just finished a very nice 9-11 memorial in our city park. Everyone got a name tag. I got Stephen’s name tag. He was one of hundreds who came back to “get his suit dirty”, meaning he came back to do what he was “called” to do, sacrifice for others. He made the ultimate sacrifice. We we allowed to keep the name tags. I’ll have it on my bathroom mirror in remembrance. Thank you Stephen.
