WILDWOOD, NJ - During the 143rd Annual New Jersey Firemen's Convention, this September, Lou Minchelli's privately owned pumper was on display bearing a tribute to the fallen heroes of the 9-11 attacks, 20-years ago.

The Mack engine was a gift for his 90th birthday. It also pays tribute to Lt. Minchelli's 25-year career as a New York City firefighter.

The Sea Isle City resident received a special 9-11 memorial trophy for his apparatus after the annual parade.
