My name is John Thiede.
I am a Romulus Firefighter who responded to the NWA Flight 255 crash. I think what you guys do is great for families. I stay in touch with the 255 families and never have missed a memorial here in Detroit since the crash in 1987. That night 156 people perished, but I went home the next day with a small ray of hope knowing I was involved in the rescue of the lone survivor.
I dont think I sleep the same since that night. I still work on the department and have to travel that road every shift. I still see it as it was that night.
My heart goes out to all those who lost loved ones this way.
All the best and keep up the good work you do.
