300 men and women are committed to that challenge. Theyll eventually replace the 343 firefighters killed in the World Trade Center attacks.

They werent just doing the job that firefighters do they were protecting lives and protecting freedom.
As the new firefighters come in more of those lost are finally being found. And each time, rescue workers stop to salute the dead.

(STAND-UP BRIDGE) Gretchen Carlson Reporting

The general public hasnt forgotten the heroic acts of the firefighters either. At this station in the heart of Manhattan 15 men were lost and 6 weeks later ... the flowers and messages are still coming in.
But the most emotional tribute to the firefighters so far happened half way around the world. Army Rangers taking part in the commando raids in Afghanistan left a special photo behind for the enemy the photo of three firefighters raising the American flag over the World Trade Center wreckage with the words Enduring Freedom.

(NAT - ceremony)

Congratulations and God bless you and be safe.

The company is Optical Cable Corporation, and its president Robert Kopstein must sell all those shares to pay off debt.
According to Thomas Mann, a professor of finance at Lynchburg College, not everyone is eligible to buy them.
That's because the stock is labeled "restricted."
That means you have to have a specific amount of income and equity to be approved to buy.
Once Optical Cable's President sells his stock, he'll no longer be a majority shareholder.
Mann says Kopstein will be lucky to have a job.
