MITCH MENDLER
(Nominated by Javier Mainar)
USS MIDWAY MUSEUM
March 13, 2011

San Diego Fire Engineer Paramedic Mitch Mendler has dedicated much of his life to commemorating the lives lost on 9/11.  He has almost single-handedly organized several anniversary ceremonies in Version:1.0 San Diego and is currently coordinating an effort to fly a flag from a fire station in every state in the nation.  It would mean a great deal to him to be able to participate in the stitching in San Diego.  As the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Fire Chief I can think of no one more deserving.
