  1. Hello Peggy, First I want to say I am sorry for your loss. I do not know you or Glenn, but I do know Frank. I have visited the Fire Zone a couple of times on trips to NYC. I lost my dad in 1994 to a fire so that is how I found out about Glenn. Frank sent me after requesting his last name a (what I call it) memorial bracelet that has Glenn’s information. I wear it proudly and think of him and your family often. I am honored to be able to wear the bracelet and tell the story behind it when I can. When I found this page I wanted to contact you. I am sure you have had many dark days in the past, but I wish nothing more then bright days to fill your future. Thinking of you and your family, Marisa

  2. Hello Peggy, first I would like to say I’m sorry for loss. I do not know you or Glenn but this past Saturday I was honored to be given a badge with your husband’s picture and information. I climbed 110 flights of stairs in the Duke Power Building in Charlotte North Carolina in memory of all those who sacrificed there lives on that Tuesday morning. Your husband’s badge will forever stay with me as part of my uniform. It will push me and motivate me when I fill like giving up. His boots have seen tragedy and sorrow. They’ve walked where most men fear. It’s takes a special person to fill those boots. Courage, bravery and compassion fill those boots. I don’t know your husband but having his badge on my uniform kept me motivated and I completed the stair climb. As I came down the elevator I saw my wife and I could only think about you and what it must have been like that morning. I will be forever grateful to your family and all those who gave the greatest sacrifice that fateful morning. Never forget.

  5. 9/7/19- today I was given the honor of carrying a photo of Lt. Glenn C. Perry for the Lambeau Field 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in Green Bay, WI. I couldn’t be more humble & proud to remember him & his sacrifice! Climbing & ringing the bell in his honor is just a small way to remember the fallen hero’s in a LARGE way…helps us stay true to the things that really matter in life; service to others. Thank you Lt. Perry & all of those who lost their lives that day.

  6. Ma’am, 18 years ago today you and your family had endured the pain that I could never come close to imagining. No amount of words could ever amount to the sacrifice and bravery that your husband had displayed that day. When we were under attack, Glenn went to work without hesitation. With courage, he put himself into harm’s way to save others regardless of his own life. He and many others like him that day, unfortunately, paid the ultimate price. I am eternally thankful for his actions and hope one day I can have the same will and courage of Glenn and other Fire Fighters on September 11th. He showed those cowards the true strength and sacrifice of our great Nation. We will never forget our Heroes. May God bless you and your family, and God bless these United States of America.

  7. Hello. I just wanted to share that I participated in a 9/11 memorial stair climb today. We were all able to pick a badge of someone lost. I chose Glenn C. Perry Lieutenant, Ladder 34. As the climb started, we all read our names individually into the microphone and rang a bell. It was an incredible event and I just wanted to try to share it with your family. Please find comfort and know that people still care. ❤️ I was honored to wear his badge.
