On September 11, 2015, On Purpose Journey Inc. is partnering with the Milwaukee Fire Department to stand in honor of the fallen from the tragic events of September 11, 2001. In a unique and fitting addition to traditional 9/11 memorial services, these events will recognize the fallen from not only the FDNY (who suffered horrendous losses), but also the NYPD as well as the many military service members from Wisconsin who have made the ultimate sacrifice in our nation’s military response to the attacks.
Firefighters, Police Officers, and members of several military branches will start the day by delivering books to a number of 5th Grade classrooms around Milwaukee County. The book, The Little White Truck with the Big Mission, tells the story of a Vietnam veteran and retired Milwaukee Fire Department Battalion Chief who journeyed to New York in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Their mission was to bring a piece of World Trade Center steel back to Milwaukee for a planned memorial at the War Memorial Center. This book and its message aim to keep the tremendous sacrifices made by Firefighters, Police Officers, and our Military Personnel alive in the hearts of our youth, who were not even alive to remember the attacks.
Additionally, a solemn, early evening memorial event, open to the public, will honor the fallen with touching and respectful displays set against the backdrop of Lake Michigan on the War Memorial Center’s open-air Fitch Plaza. The very piece of World Trade Center steel recovered from New York will be on display in addition to tributes specific to the individual Firefighters, Police Officers, and fallen Wisconsin Military Personnel.
For the entire month of September, Milwaukee Fire Department personnel will be given special dispensation to wear newly designed t-shirts in support of this event. As part of our effort to engage and include the community in this memorial, we will be offering these t-shirts and challenge coins for sale to the general public. We are inviting you to assist us in this effort. We would consider it an honor to have you/your employees/your organization/your department wearing the “We Are One” t-shirts with us in the week leading up to September 11th. These unique t-shirts and coins are also available online.
Whether at the Individual Partnership levels or at the Corporate Partnership levels, each contribution will assist in our efforts to memorialize the fallen. Make sure to check out the Net-Zero option, which allows your company to receive sponsorship benefits at no financial loss.
Join us in providing Books for Bravery and Standing for the Fallen. All the information can be viewed at: https://onpurposejourney.com/9-11/
