The War: Last Service Held for 9/11 WTC Fireman

Lukas I. Alpert of the AP reports:

Firefighters in formal dress and others in work attire were among hundreds of people who gathered Sunday to pay respects to Michael Ragusa, the last firefighter killed in the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center to receive a memorial service.

The 29-year-old's remains have never been identified, so his family chose to bury a vial of blood he had donated to a bone marrow center. A funeral was scheduled for Monday.
I find the vial of blood of the lost firefighter to be a powerful statement. Let not one drop of blood shed on September 11th go unpunished.
