Hernandez Attends 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony
This past Sunday, I attended an amazing ceremony in remembrance of September 11th with OCSD Sheriff-Coroner Sandra Hutchens, Maj. General Daniel O’Donohue, Commanding General, 1st Marine Division, Yorba Linda Mayor Tom Lindsey and OCFA PIO Chief Jeff Bowman.
Not just on this solemn day, but every day of the year, we cannot often look at a firefighter or police officer and not think back to the tremendous sacrifice made by first responders on Sept. 11, 2001.
343 members of the FDNY

The vivid, shocking, and unthinkable images of that early fall morning 15 years ago, are forever etched in our collective memories. In fact, they are now part of our collective culture as a nation.
