Episode 5: A September 11th Story featuring Tommy Molta, First Responder

This week, Jen sits down with a retired captain of the Hoboken Fire Department {2010} and President of the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Tommy Molta — a first responder in Hoboken on September 11th, 2001. Tommy was one of the first to the scene at the Hoboken train station when victims of 9/11 came across the Hudson to safety on that tragic day. He shares his incredibly emotional story of bravery, kindness, courage, and how the Hoboken community came together and helped over 2000 people who escaped from NYC. It is definitely worth a listen and a share, as we must #NeverForget.
