This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Michael Carroll, FDNY, Ladder 3, who was killed on September 11, 2001. "His “brothers” in Ladder Three and those men of the surrounding units knew by working alongside him through the years and watching first hand his actions on the fire ground as well as in the firehouse. I never had the pleasure of working a fire with Mike, but I have been told he had a combination of guts, great instinct and undeniable determination. In the F.D.N.Y., one does not need to hold rank to be a leader. As a fireman, Mike was a natural born leader. A man that was never afraid to take the bull by the horns.
But to the rest of us, I believe it was Mike’s nobility of purpose that we all respected, admired and loved him for the most. To his friends he was someone who was as loyal as they came, someone who was always there when the chips were down. A man who would never back away from anything he believed in, and would stand behind them when they needed to stand for something they believed in. That surely was Mike."
