56-foot Bronze Sculpture Honors 343 Members of the New York City Fire
Department and Holland & Knight Partner Who Perished on 9-11
NEW YORK, June 10 – LAWFUEL – Press Release Service — Lawyers and staff from the national
law firm Holland & Knight LLP today dedicated an historic 9-11 memorial to
the New York City Fire Department. The memorial, dedicated to the 343
members of the NYC Fire Department as well as a partner at Holland & Knight
who died on that tragic day, is located at Engine 10 Ladder 10, directly
across from Ground Zero.
On September 11, 2001, when two hijacked airplanes were deliberately
flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, Holland & Knight’s
New York partner, volunteer firefighter and EMT Glenn J. Winuk, ran out of
his office at 195 Broadway, across the street from the World Trade Center
site, and toward the burning buildings to help. Like so many others, Glenn
died that morning, in an act that could only be described as truly heroic.
Lawyers and staff throughout Holland & Knight’s offices nationwide
began a grassroots campaign to build a tribute dedicated to Glenn and the
343 members of the New York City Fire Department who perished. Former New
York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler and
Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta and hundreds of surviving family
members of New York City Firefighters who died on September 11th attended
the unveiling ceremony.
“This memorial represents our immense gratitude to Glenn and every
member of the NYC Fire Department who made the ultimate sacrifice, and
honors all those who died,” said Brian D. Starer, Chair of Holland &
Knight’s 9-11 Memorial Wall Committee and Vice President of the Holland &
Knight Charitable Foundation.
“We are deeply grateful to Holland & Knight for this extraordinary gift
that will be on permanent display for all to see and remember,” said
