Retired Fire fighter Bob Beckwith became a symbol of resolve for the country when he was photographed with President Bush atop the charred shell of a firetruck as the President told distraught New Yorkers: "The people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon." While it was one of the proudest days of Bob's life, he is even more touched that the president has kept in contact with him. "I've heard from the president quite a few times," he says, "I was invited to the White House to the Oval Office and to the Christmas party. I was honored to be there." Bob, now 79, raises money for the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation. He has 6 adult children and 10 grandchildren and lives with his wife in Baldwin, Long Island.
