On behalf of the American public, President Barack Obama expressed deepest sympathies to the survivors of 87 fallen firefighters during the 34th annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service on Sunday, October 4.
The President spoke of bravery and courage
that is instinctive among all firefighters, who are willing to walk through fire to save a stranger’s life.
“Those we honor today lived a fundamental principle that binds us as Americans: I am my brother’s keeper and I am my sister’s keeper. That we look out for one another,” he said.”
On March 23rd, AIMM supported a visit to the Nasa Kennedy Center with the Urban Youth Impact Academy.
The children learned about Earth and space science and had an opportunity for hands on training and the chance to imagine what it would be like to be an astronaut.
