This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to David LaForge, FDNY, Ladder 20, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

David LaForge, 50, fighting fires was a childhood dream. An ocean lover, he taught nephews and niece to bodysurf, helped his family whenever he could. Like so many of his fellow heroes, David LaForge, a 24-year veteran of the Fire Department, was done with his shift when the terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. But when Ladder 20 in Manhattan got the call on Sept. 11, this seasoned driver jumped in his beloved fire engine and raced downtown to the Twin Towers. Mr. LaForge was seen last on the 35th floor of Tower 1, helping others get to safety, and remains one of the missing from the attack.
