This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Gary Box, FDNY, Squad 1, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Gary Box, 37, joined the New York Fire Department about five years ago and spent just more than a year with Squad 1 in Park Slope. Erik Troelsen, now 42 and living in Switzerland, posted photographs last fall on the museum's online archive of 9/11 images, videos and stories. One showed a firefighter in full gear striding through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel ahead of his traffic-stalled fire truck shortly after the attacks.

When Box's wife, Helen, saw the photograph online, they found it was the only known image of Box's son Gary on the day he and 11 others from his Brooklyn firehouse lost their lives in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. The remains of the 37-year-old married father of two from North Bellmore were never identified.
