My name is Kevin Corrigan. I am a career firefighter in Utica, New York and have been for seven years. Before that, I served in the United States Marine Corps and deployed to Iraq in 2003 for Operation Iraqi Freedom. 9/11 means a lot to me. I lost a very close friend of mine Alan Feinberg on that day. I have also lost several friends from the Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am climbing for all of them, especially Alan Feinberg (FDNY), Greg Macdonald (USMC), Jeff Boskovitch (USMC), and Gary Bell (USMC). If the organizers will allow, I am going to complete the climb in full gear with Scott pack and tools. It is a very important cause to me because it is very important that we as a nation never get complacent. I knew I wanted to walk when I had a bunch of my kid's friends over and I was watching a show on 9-11 and one of them asked where that was and what happened? I am climbing so my kids can learn what happened. I appreciate any help you can give in meeting and far exceeding my goal.
