Officer Amoroso and family, Although I have never met you your picture and story was mentioned during a meeting that I was at in Quantico Virginia. I was taken away by your heroic actions on September 11th 2001. As a native of New Jersey I also remember that day as if it just happened. My father was just a few blocks away during the terrorist attack. Currently serving as an active duty Marine please know that your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Having been to Iraq and deploying to Afghanistan in October understand that it is heroes like you that make it an honor and privilege to serve this great nation. As my wife and I just recently had our first child I can assure you that he will hear the story of Officer Amoroso. We will never forget. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Semper Fi.

Today in San Diego I climbed Stairs for the 911 Memorial Stair Climb. This is the first time I participated in this event. We all were given a name and photo to wear in memory. I wore Christopher Amoroso. I went home and researched this amazing man. I was so touched by his story and his letter to his daughter. I wanted you to know I am so honored to have been given this name today to climb for. I will share this story with all my friends and pass on the memory of Christopher. Never Forget!

Yesterday I ran at the Patriot Run 5k in memory of the 9/11 victims. I wore a bib with Christopher Amoroso's name on it, and hadn't realized just how amazing this young man was. I already had a foundation of awe and gratitude with his sacrifice, but having read more about his life and accomplishments, I've grown more aware and grateful for having had people like him in this world. Thank you, Christopher - a million times over.

I am a freshman in high school this year and I am doing a project on Christopher Amoroso. I am so sorry for anyone who knew him. He saved lives and inspired so many people. He was such an amazing man and his sacrifice will not be forgotten.
