ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001,

343 FIRST RESPONDERS LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES TO SAVE OTHERS.

WE HONOR THEIR SACRIFICE AND THE 2,977 OTHERS LOST THAT DAY. 

Since that day over 11,000 U.S. military and contractors have died in combat, and over 100,000 have been injured.  Over 450 first responders have died post 9/11/2001 due to 9/11 related cancers and illnesses. 

In remembrance of September 11, 2001

LifeGR CEO, Jesse Johnson-Brower made history as the first person to walk between the three national 9/11 memorials. He walked from the World Trade Center National Memorial in New York City, to the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA, to the Pentagon National memorial in Washington DC. Over a period of 27 days, he will walk 487 miles, and across 6 states in support of LifeGR. 

“It’s easy to remember how you felt that September morning when you heard America was under attack, but all too often we overlook the unbelievable heroism shown by our heroic first responders and service members. I had the privilege of working side by side with these brave men and women as they risked, and in many cases gave their lives serving complete strangers. As a member of the Army’s 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), I was one of many soldiers on call that morning to defend Washington D.C. when needed. My company, Charlie Company was the first to respond to the attack on the Pentagon that historic morning. What I saw that day gave me eternal appreciation and respect for ALL who choose to wear the uniform. That day our first responders and service members did what they always do…they did their job with the utmost professionalism and excellence. For that reason alone, we as a country should be eternally grateful…I know I am.”
