Marines and Sailors from 6th Communication Battalion, Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserved stationed in Brooklyn, New York run through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to Ground Zero is the annual Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation run. 

On September 11, 2001, Stephen, who was assigned to Brooklyn’s Squad 1, had just finished his shift, and was on his way to play golf with his brothers when he got word of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers over his scanner. Upon hearing the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later, and returned to Squad 1 to get his gear.

Stephen drove his truck to the entrance of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it had already been closed for security purposes. Determined to carry out his duty, he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, and raced on foot through the tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.
 
The mission of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. We also honor our military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country

Hail and Farewell - August 2016

During August drill, Lieutenant Colonel Cordone relinquished command of 6th Communication Battalion to Lieutenant Colonel Smith. 

The change of command ceremony is a formal tradition, symbolizing the continuity of the authority of command. It is a transfer of total responsibility, authority, and accountability from one officer to another and is usually conducted before the assembled company of the command.

We wish LtCol Cordone the best for him and his family as they depart on a new adventure. 

Semper Fidelis!
