I received a memorial bracelet with Joseph s name shortly after 9/11 and have worn it ever year since. I have read a couple posts from his friends and family and and I am honored to help keep his memory alive. Love to all and those who were close to him.

In Remembrance
Place of Residence:
Brooklyn, NY
Location on 9/11:
Fire Department of New York | Firefighter, Ladder 21

Firefighter Joseph P. Henry‚ age 25‚ assigned to Ladder 21‚ Manhattan‚ was very dedicated to his job‚ his family‚ and his country. Joseph followed in the footsteps of his two brothers‚ Edward and Michael‚ who are firefighters; his Uncle Jim‚ a Captain; his father‚ a Battalion Chief; and his Grandfather who also was a Battalion Chief.

Joey played baseball as a kid; in fact at the age of 14 he played for Gil Hodges League and won the North Atlantic Regional Championship and went on to play in the World Series in Spring‚ Texas. He continued to play on teams as a young adult with friends and his brothers from Ladder 21. The Yankees were his favorite team.

Joey started out in the Cadet Program in the Fire Department. When he graduated he became an EMT. He had a great sense of humor and was very compassionate to all the people he came across. After two years he took the firefighter’s test and became a firefighter. His greatest achievement was the day he became a New York City Firefighter.
