Al Carson remembers standing on the deck of the U.S. Comfort, sick after several days of breathing foul air following the destruction of the World Trade Center after Sept. 11, 2001.

“I remember looking out on New York Harbor and saw the Statue of Liberty,” the former Charleroi K-9 officer said. “I cried, and asked God for strength and protection.”

Carson, along with Rostraver Township Detective Sgt. Kerry August and Chief Greg Resetar went to Ground Zero days after the terror attacks. They volunteered to help with the gruesome task of recovering the bodies of the victims at the twin towers.

August’s K-9 dog, Hero, was trained in cadaver tactics.
