BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport firefighters paused during a busy day at headquarters to watch President Barack Obama's visit to Ground Zero. The visit hit close to home for the department as members remembered Dana Hannon, a former Bridgeport firefighter who was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 11.
The president laid a wreath at Ground Zero to honor the victims of the terror attacks. He also met privately with victims' families and first responders. The visit to New York took place just days after Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan. Bridgeport Fire Department Lt. Giovanni Sanzo said the wreath ceremony was a nice touch and that he?s pleased to see the people of 9/11 are not forgotten.Obama lays wreath at Ground Zero, meets with 9/11 victims' familiesVIDEO: Obama lays wreath at Ground ZeroVIDEO: President Obama announces Osama bin Laden's deathNational September 11 Memorial and Museum
