About the wod
This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Thomas Kuveikis, FDNY, Squad 252, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
Thomas Kuveikis, 48, of upstate Carmel, grew up in East Williston. He was a firefighter assigned to Squad 252 in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
On 9/11, Kathleen Gelman saw her brother, Thomas Kuveikis, on CNN. He and other firefighters stood next to their truck parked in front of Century 21, the department store across the street from the World Trade Center. The firefighters were putting on their gear.
By sundown, she had learned that he was among those listed as missing. “I kept hitting the stop button just to see my brother’s face,” she recalled. “I think I didn’t want to believe he was gone. I just wanted to look at his face for the last time.”
