Raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Denease Conley lived in Brooklyn. A U.S. Navy veteran, Denease earned a bachelor’s degree in English and philosophy while working as a security guard with Summit Security Services at the World Trade Center. She planned to continue her education and become a lawyer. On September 11, Denease was last seen aiding firefighters in the North Tower lobby. Today we honor her 60th birthday by placing a white rose at her name on the 9/11 Memorial.

Rescue and recovery workers from all over the country arrived at Ground Zero to help. Joining these brave men and women were dogs specially trained in search and rescue, police work, therapy and comfort. Working alongside their handlers, these four legged heroes put their lives on the line for us. The spirit and stories of these heroic dogs live on at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. https://911memorial.io/2qWydG2

From the rubble at Ground Zero, stood a 36-foot tall piece of steel from the South Tower. Uncovered by rescue and recovery workers, the “Last Column” was soon filled with inscriptions and mementos left by workers, relatives and friends of victims. In the series Interpreting the Last Column: The Stories Behind the Markings we share the stories of this significant piece of steel.
