Remembering The Hero’s Of September 11th

Sam & Richard
Sam & Richard


Today I’d like to honor my dad and his dog Sam. They both have done so much for the community and the nation as a whole, by providing a service of search and rescue.


They both attended the recovery efforts of September 11th, 2001. A day the Nation will never forget. An ordinary dog and a not so ordinary man, took it upon themselves to do more then most and few would try. They went beyond the call of duty and assisted so many other people from this great Nation and helped the many trying to survive this catastrophic event.


But leading up to this was a man on a mission. Recovering from neck surgery and a flea market puppy looking for a home. The two paths crossed and history was made.


Both have left there mark on this world and will never be forgotten.


If you are ever in Mississippi, you must stop in Southaven. Go visit Sam’s memorial at the Southaven Fire Department on Goodman Road. Stop in Pontotoc and meet my dad. I guarantee you will never meet anyone like him in your entire life.
