Rocco Cusano has been a firefighter for nearly 30 years. As a member of the Ossining, New York, Fire Department, he was driving in to work on Sept. 11, 2001 when he heard the first plane hit the Twin Towers.
The following day Rocco, along with other volunteers from his department, went to New York City, to provide whatever help they could.
At the time, Rocco’s son, Justin Cusano, was only nine months old. Justin, who grew up in his dad’s firehouse and followed in his footsteps to become a firefighter, joined the Marine Corps following high school.
“I did it because of him and for my family, but mainly for him,” Justin said. “He always gave me that push and motivation in life.”
Watch the video below for the full story of this father and son’s inspiring connection to September 11th.
