hero9.jpg Hello Pat. My name is Dan Potter. I am the firefighter sitting on the bench "some gave all...". I was in both collapses. The photo was taken about an hour after the second collapse where I was unsure of the fate of my wife Jean, who was on the 81st floor of the first tower that was struck. Happily, our story has a happy ending, we both survived, I survived both collapses. Our story is in the book by Dennis Smith "Report from Ground Zero". My wife and I have been doing free lectures about our experience that day, I would love to open our lecture with "Remember the Blood of Heroes". If possible could you please let me know where I may be able to get a copy of the CD-rom? I worked regularly with Greg Saucedo. I was the senior man in Ladder 5 where we both worked and studied for promotion together. He was some character, great guy.
