I was recalled under NY State Naval Militia Orders to the WTC somewhere around October 24, 2001...instead of medical support, I ended up being the "Navy side of the house" Staff Non-Commissioned Officers In Charge (SNCOIC) of a Security Detachment at Piers 36, 92 and 94. This is where the FBI, State Police Agencies, NYPD, FDNY, PAPD, FEMA, SEMA, Mayor's Emergency Management Office, Morgue, Red Cross, Public Affairs, etc. was located.
This is the medal the State awarded us...can't wear it on my uniform unless at State Military functions.
