“MacDill AFB was home to three separate military commands which were responsible for the military’s response to 9/11, and many of those members, supported by their families, still go to work every day to prevent future planned attacks to our homeland. Also, there are numerous members of our community, including a large number of retired or disabled first responders, who used to live in the vicinity of New York City or Washington DC when the attacks took place that now call Tampa Bay home.”
