For a fund raising project I'm working on, I need a simple answer. All the news outlets, and the City of New York, say that the FDNY lost 343 members on Sept. 11.
At the FDNY site http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/fdny/html/home2.html
is a listing of all the lost men. A quick count shows 344
Does the official count not include the First Deputy Commissioner (William Feehan?), or the Chief of Department (Peter J. Ganci)?
I need the proper number for a limited edition photograph I'm producing. Instead of every print in the run being numbered, they'll each carry the name of a fireman, followed by the number of prints in the run (and susequently the number of lost men.)
Any FDNY dopers out there that can help me?
